Ingrid Law: Villains or No Villains

Actually, Ingrid's session is called "Major villains need not apply: Writing fantasy without an archenemy"

ooh... we're starting out with an exercise! I love these...

And here are some great quotes from Ingrid:

I'm not anti-villain.

All sorts of things turn into monsters for kids, don't they?

After she wrote Savvy, she realized there were no major villains in it. Her characters, even with their magical powers, are coping with the problems of real life. (Problems that everyone can relate to - no dark Lords or monsters)

And when she talks to kids,

Boys want the villain.

Girls tell her they never like fantasy, but they LOVED Savvy.
