You know that character who you hate so much that you keep hoping the author has them die some sort of horrible death? Or maybe you don’t, in which case this would be extraordinarily awkward and you probably think I’m some sort of deranged psychopath…
Whatever, it’s my blog.

It is these awful, infuriating and despicable characters that I admire just as much as the brave and heroic ones.

For what else is a story other than to invoke emotion from an audience?
