Feel free to laugh at this blog post if you want to, but it's a genuine thing I struggle with, so the answer and a way to remember the difference is what I'm asking for with this post.
Protagonists and antagonists - they are both necessary in every story you write, I know that much, but are protagonists the main character and antagonists the supporting characters or are protagonists "goodies" and antagonists "baddies"? What if the main character is a baddie? Are they the Protagonist because they are the main character or the antagonist because they are a baddie??
Like I said, feel free to laugh.
From your belly if you must.
I promise it's a genuine question though, that I've struggled with since I started writing with the hope of one day being published... the other stories were purely an outpouring of creativity for nobody else's eyes but mine.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think? Please?
