My bad guy just pulled into the parking lot. He and my main character (MC) are about to meet and I'm all atingle just thinking about it.
Wouldn't you know it, but Writer Unboxed has another post about the antagonist, but this time Therese Walsh talks about the contagonist. This character is similar to the antagonist, where they try to prevent the protagonist from accomplishing their goal, but different in that they only want to delay the inevitable. They don't want to stop him. I know it sounds a little confusing; please read the link for a better explanation.
Yesterday Ibis and I went to my friend's house for a pool day/BBQ. The party was almost a bust when the sky opened up for a two-hour rainstorm - almost. The host and her boyfriend ran to the pool and madness ensued. All eight of us became kids again - diving, flipping, and canonballing into the pool. Two of the dogs even joined the fun.
It's always in the 90s here so the rain wasn't cold and the pool felt like a sauna. It was pouring so hard that I had to shield my eyes just to see ten feet in front of me. We only had one injury - rain + slippery tiles tend to do that - but after a little ice, she was fine.
I planned to elaborate a little more but today is turning into a migraine day. And I didn't even drink, grr. I'm going to lay low the rest of the day and hopefully get some writing done. I can't wait to meet my bad guy.
