I’m going to start off my posts by saying: Anti-Hero Protagonists are my bread and butter.
Anti-Heroes catch my attention faster than typical heroes in any story because I like their indifference to do what’s right, but they end up doing it anyway.
But, here’s the thing. I don’t want to develop my main character Anti-Hero and have her turn out, in the end, to be a Hero. I want her to keep being the Anti-Hero of the novel long after it’s done.
Is there any advice on how to develop her in a way that retains all of her Anti-Hero-ness while still showing that she’s growing as a person into a sort-of-better person?
