Yesterday was a prime example.
For some crazy reason, I decided to take on writing a novel from the point of view of the main antagonist of my series, Kaden. It's a Macbeth-ish negative character arc situation. Throughout the novel, he lies to people and manipulates them. And yet I have an urge to make him sympathetic.
Call me crazy — I may be. Actually, a certain person who reads my stories had a bit of a joking debate with me about whether I was a sociopath too...it was entertaining, to say the least.
