Last week we looked at not making our ‘heroes’ too angelic. I didn’t think to say, that we also, of course, shouldn’t make our ‘baddies’ too terrible either!

Even the most evil of people will have a soft spot for something or someone – they would perhaps do anything for their granny, or guard their little sisters with their life. Nobody is all bad, in just the same way that nobody is all good!

Grace and peace to you, and hope you are enjoying the holidays,
