08:39 pm: Rant on avoiding a villain monologue

YOU'RE ALIVE!!! Thank the FSM! Hope those health issues go away for good. And don't worry about writer's block. Post whenever you feel like it, you can be sure we'll be here waiting for you :]

Point (3) is great. Now I'm imagining scenes where an honest villain monologue comes back and bites the disbelieving protagonist in the bum. Although that still makes the villain look stupid, unless he was somehow sure that the hero wouldn't believe him.

They're subsiding, though still present.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons that I find it very hard to take honest villains seriously. If the story sounds convincing enough, then the hero always seems to believe it, anyway.
