I'm working on the backstory for another novel. This will detail the villian's ascension to power and the corruption of her originally good intentions. I'm having a lot of trouble getting into their heads, which silly because they're just people honestly trying to make life better for themselves and their community. If some things don't turn out quite the way they expect and some people go a little power-mad, well, they're only human, right? Absolute power corrupts absolutely and all that.
Some stuff is working and other stuff just leaves me staring at the screen and wondering what, if anything, comes next.
