Nothing Wicked This Way Comes...
- Jun 9, 2020
We all know pure evil exists - you only have to look at the news or back through history to see this is true - but how do you handle it in your writing? Do you prefer a black-and-white good-versus-evil thing, or do you prefer to blur the lines? Do you like to offer redemption to your "bad guy" or even twist the morals of your "good guy" so that they end up doing "evil"? Does evil even exist as a concept in your work, or do your characters just do what they have to do to survive, which may involve doing things that might not be considered appropriate? Do you like to have a character go through the metamorphosis from one to the other? Is there always salvation or can some characters just not be saved? And have you ever written anything where evil actually triumphed at the end?
