Lately with my novel Healers I've been hitting a pretty big block: my antagonist doesn't make sense. I was so busy fleshing out my two main characters that I forgot to empathise with my villain.

Hi everyone, CampNaNoWriMo is now well into its second week and I've reached 8545 words written so far in April. Yesterday, I checked my full novel word count and I saw that I had reached 70K words in total. Not bad, right? I'm still in the chapters pre-THEBIGBATTLETM which makes me believe that [...]
