I love when a character has a nemesis. I heard at a conference once, that you should make your villans tanglible beings. Not just an object like the eye of Sauron, but an actual person that your character can come up against.
There will be different opinions on this and that's okay. That's what makes our writing unique. And while I love Lord of the Rings, even if it is an eye, I also love when characters have a nemesis to battle!
It doesn't matter if you're old or young, you'll find a nemesis in many different shows. I can't help but love these characters. They can be truly evil and when our characters are able to out match them and out smart them, it is truly a triumphant moment. Not to mention the suspense they can add to your story. Love it!
I don't have a nemesis to share with you, but my dog does. It's the next door neighbors dog. Honestly, I think those two would kill each other in a fight. I'm not sure who would be the winner, but it'd be awful to watch. Both dogs are fine with other dogs, but they can find each other from a mile a way and then... IT.IS.ON!
How do you feel about having a nemesis in a story? Do you have one in real life? Wanna share?
FYI --- I can finally blog again so I'll be skipping around to all of your blogs as much as possible! Thanks for being patient while I got a working computer again!
