A Walk on the Dark Side: Writing Believable Villains

Over at his Bad Girls, Good Guys, and Two-Fisted Action Blog, Sean Taylor asked about writing great villains. You can read all of the responses, including a few from Bobby, at http://seanhtaylor.blogspot.com/2012/01/walk-on-dark-side-writing-believable.html.

From the site:

For Christmas this year I got a book called BULLIES, BASTARDS & BITCHES -- HOW TO WRITE THE BAD GUYS OF FICTION by Jessica Page Morrell. It's the first writing book I've read in years, and it was well worth the wait to find a good one. While reading it, it got me thinking (obviously, duh) about the villians and what makes them tick. What sets a good and memorable villain apart from a clearly lackluster one? What is that magic mojo that writer "do" when they write villains that makes them seem so real to the reader?

So, once again, I turned to the writing community and asked. Only this time, I opened it up to other genre writers and not just those in pulp.

Here's what they had to say.
