We recently reminded you of the importance of making your villains complex, rather than pure evil.  

Writer’s Digest must've been thinking along the same lines, too, because they shared an excerpt from a new writing guide that focuses on a pretty villainous action: gaslighting.

It’s become a popular term in the past few years, so you probably already understand that it’s a form of mental manipulation that causes its victims to question reality.

Carla Hoch, in this excerpt from Fight Write, explains how creating a gaslighter is an effective way to invent a villain for your novel.
