Writing from an antagonist’s point of view

So, I got some feedback regarding a book and it was very good feedback. So I came up with a concept to rewrite that part of the story and realised I needed to do a side story from his point of view to make sure it would work. Of course, as I usually do, I’ve done a very good job and may have another book for the series. Oh dear.

But I’m still only half-way through the side story and it will take me a while to finish that – the biggest task is yet to come and I’m looking forward to it.

The interesting side of this is that I merged what I’ve written so far with the main book (different file, don’t panic!) and then read it all as one. It is actually working! Which I am pleased as punch about. Mind you, it has been mainly background information and actions and the next part is where the new side of the antagonist interacts directly with the main book. Which means I’ll be writing that side of it and then rewriting the main book so that it makes a lot more sense than it does now. And that’s what I’m looking forward to doing.

I have finally revisited an interesting style of writing – writing with a cat between the keyboard and myself! We swapped tables out and I have our smaller dining table as my desk and Fizzgig is liking it because she finally has enough room to curl up or even clean on the desk between the screen and me. Which means if there are any errors in this typing, please excuse them as although I’m a touch typist it’s been a long time since I’ve typed without looking at the screen at the same time!
