It is March 6, the first Wednesday of the month which means it is time for another post for IWSG. If you would like to know more about it, please visit this link:
Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist)? And why?
This is a hard question because I have plenty of stories where I write in the hero and the villain's perspective. This question allows me to share my other projects I am working on. I like to tell it in the perspective which would be more interesting and this depends upon the project I am working on.
Sometimes, I find it more interesting to write a story based upon the villain's POV like for instance, my darkest POV would have to be a project I am currently writing that is something like an Epic Fantasy. The perspective is a demon with a human form. I did this because I like educating about the real side to demons and in this series, I share how real demons think. This book is in the Epic Fantasy, Horror genre. I feel it is interesting to allow the villain's agenda to sometimes be successful for a change. I write unpredictable stories because I believe in writing suspense filled stories that people cannot say they'll know what will happen next. I think sometimes writing in the perspective of the villain can allow me to have more of suspense. I think.
I just think is a hard question, although recently I have created WIPs that are not writing with the hero or the good guy's perspective. It can also be interesting to write in the hero's point of view if I feel the character is interesting. I try to pick based upon which perspective would be more exciting, adventurous and action filled. So it can be hard for me to answer this one because I have found it equally interesting to write in both perspectives.
