Every great protagonist needs an equally great antagonist to struggle against. Without this conflict or opposition, a story will be dull, uninteresting, and unfocused. But, what is an antagonist? Must it always be a villain or have bad intentions? Can it be an object, a situation, a certain condition? Must a story have only one antagonist, or can it have several, both internal and external? Editor JoSelle Vanderhooft will discuss these questions and more in this webinar, which will teach you how to give your main character(s) a negative force to overcome.

I trust this webinar will answer the questions that have been floating around in my head as to how to present my antagonist.
Hello! I also write in the horror genre. For my money the best writer at representing Good and Evil in the protagonist and antagonist is Dean Koontz. If you haven't read his books, check out Watchers or Servants of Twilight to see what I mean.
