Hello,Finally got around to working on an idea that has been about ten lines on a .txt recently. The problem is I have a character issue.The protagonist needs to be left by his wife in the first chapter. She needs to be totally evil so that female audiences don't think she left 'cause of the guy. (This was all explained by some female family members.) The problem seems to have two points...1) I don't know of many truely mean/selfish/witchy characters from my life or from movies (will be renting Death Becomes Her and War of the Roses).----Does anyone have some other examples2) It is difficult to come up with a reason he is with her in the first place. (I keep thinking some kind of shotgun wedding type thing, but it's too contrived.) See...she has to finally decide he isn't her 'type' and that he will never be changed...and leave him stranded. (It leads to all the other plot lines.)----Does anyone know of some examples I can read or watch where the nice/quite/introverted/blue collar type guy ends up with the witchy/beverlyhills/spoiled/princess woman? (And not like in Overboard where she gets better in the end.)Buffy (who has finally decided that he needs to take the laptop and LEAVE the house to get the writing going...)
