Read the Science Fiction Thriller

From the founder of Storymind

Man Made follows a mysterious force as it sweeps around the globe erasing anything man made - from buildings, vehicles, and technology to medicines, clothing, and dental work.

Governments stagger under the panic, religions are at a loss for an explanation, scientists strive for any means to stop or divert the phenomenon, and the world’s population from families to individuals struggle to prepare for The Event, which will drive humanity back beyond the stone age.

The Event is coming.

Are you prepared?

Antagonist Personal

As with the previous step, the purpose here is to explore how this character's function as an antagonist is influenced by its personality and vice versa.  The object is to create a complete and seamless character in whom the audience cannot tell where the antagonist leaves off and the person begins.

This purpose can be helped by describing scenarios in which you explore the interaction of the antagonist's personality with other characters, and in regard to other story points.

In this step, describe how you will reveal to your readers the impact of your antagonist's personality on his or her function.
