Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG.
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. Remember, the question is optional!!!
March 6th question: Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist) and why?
His awesome co-hosts for the March 6 posting of the IWSG are Fundy Blue, Beverly Stowe McClure, Erika Beebe, and Lisa Buie-Collard!
So far, I've always written a story from the perspective of the hero or heroine. Never actually gave it a thought to write from the villain's point of view. It might be fun though.
Why? Many of my stories start with a title. Often a title just pops into my head. I jot it down and think about it for awhile and see what happens. I think it would be neat to write a story alternating the main characters. One chapter from the viewpoint of the hero; the next chapter from the villain. Oh, yes. I want to do that. Have you done that? Thanks for the idea. If I ever finish what I'm working on, I may try it. My current hero is making all kinds of changes to what I thought was finished. He has other ideas.
Looking forward to see your answers. Should be fun.
