Rabbit Writer -- Author Villain

The author makes the best villain of the story.

When you think about it, the author really is the bad guy of the fictional world he creates. He's the reason the villain decided to take out his mommy issues on the planet. He's the reason the hero's father was killed by the shadowy figure. He's the reason the princess was captured by the power-mad ogre king.

Of course, he's also the reason the good guys win in the end (if they win) but that's beside the point.

Yes, the author is the bad guy who invents the evil characters. Writers only get the blame if the story is bad.

A plot which works, characters who breathe and convince, and a plausible setting, exonerate the dark motives of the author who whips both the good, and entropic forces in a story.

Thanks for the thought-provoking post!
