What I love doing is giving my antagonists a backstory. There's something about explaining the villain's actions; a reason they do what they've done without fear of the consequences. It also makes them more human. For example, the villain might be lashing out because of the abuse that happened in their childhood, or, it could be their way of "getting even" with people that have the same characteristics of a junior high/ high school bully. Which also might provoke empathy towards them from the reader. www.instagram.com/p/B4eGWhog1LD/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
