No idea. We need a villain, but, due to real life issues or simple stress, the creative juices just won’t flow. This is where this pdf comes into the picture.   While its introduction explains how to use it and we get some sample, developed stories, this pdf breaks villains down into components, which you role – archetypical components, if you will.
