Wait, this book isn't about me?

I've learned when writing I enjoy my words more when I don't treat any of my characters as the Antagonist. I think the story flows better when each POV is written as though they are who the story is about.

Some of my characters are nasty, brutal and can commit rather villainous acts but none of them are villains. They each have their reasons for doing what they do, no matter how misguided those actions may be.

I used to write villains. Now I write people.
