I know everyone talks about how fun it is to write villains, but why? The villain should be a reflection of the hero. A dark reflection, but a reflection of some element of the protagonist. Also, a villain really should never be the villain in his own head. The most interesting villains to me are the ones who think they are the heroes of their stories.
What do you think?

I use many tools in creating my stories, but this one is my favorite.
Moleskins are very important to my process and I plan on digging into that this week in other posts. I'm a lunatic when it comes to legal tablets or notebooks. I simply cannot write in them if they have gnarled edges, torn leavings at the top, or visible indentations from other writing. I just can not use them and would rather throw away the tablet.
It's a thing.
I need pristine rivers of white to scribble my wandering thoughts on.
I also can't write with cheap Bics or those pens that come a thousand to a bag. I have several pens I use and I am always on the lookout for more. I love the smooth and uninterrupted flow of ink on paper.
Now I sound like a method actor - a method writer. I just love the process of writing almost as much as writing. I get caught up in it like nothing else.
