Writing Prompt – December 18th

If your antagonist had an odd collection, what would he or she collect?

Is there an interesting plot device that might explore this (possibly secret) aspect of your antagonist?

This has been one of the most fruitful prompts in our A Novel Approach workshops. If nothing comes to mind right away, it draws attention to your antagonist and potential weaknesses to be exploited in the story.
