Creative Writing – The Antagonist’s View

The antagonist essay should follow the following guidelines:

1) Set your character in an appropriate location and describe them sitting down. What does the room look like, what can we see?

2) Next, describe the character in some detail. What do they look like, what are they wearing?

3) Now move on to what they are thinking about – think about thoughts and feelings regarding the protagonist. Can we in any way sympathise with their situation?

4) Have you character come to some sort of decision about what they are going to do next (this could even be an action from the source novel/ film).

5) Describe them leaving the room.

Remember, plot is largely confined to the thoughts and reflections of the antagonist – we don’t want a dramatic chain of events because this leads us away from exploring the character.

Any questions, you know how to get me…
