The semi-colons post might end up being in parts because it's complex to put together well. (I say this being halfway done.) Semi-colons are a tricky business.
A large part of the reason why I haven't been around here much is because I'm very actively writing my novel, and I had a thought to share.
I find myself liking my villain more and more. He's got good reasons for doing what he does, and other things have me sympathizing. I just wonder if other writers or readers have had this experience: liking the villain. I've had it as a reader, but never as a writer. Anyone care to add likeable villains?
From Jeff Lindsay's Dexter series: I have to admit I kinda like Dexter's brother Biney (in the books, not the show).
