How do you write a villain in a memoir?
That’s a trick question, says author, lecturer, and coach William Kenower — there isn’t a villain in a memoir, unless you’re the villain.
Sure, there’s likely a person (or people) doing villainous things, but if that person or people aren’t the writer, then the writer cannot know with absolute certainty what their motives were.
See where that leaves you as a memoir writer in Writer’s Digest.
