13.4: Protagonists Who Aren’t Sympathetic
Your Hosts: Brandon, Valynne, Dan, and Howard
This week we’re joined by Valynne Maetani, who’ll be one of our hosts all year. We’re discussing protagonists who, per writer intent, do not engender audience sympathy.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Dan Thompson, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Write a likable character, but write them in such a way that the reader does not want them to succeed.
Thing of the week: Lord Foul’s Bane: The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, Book One, by Stephen R. Donaldson.
