I'm roughly at the end of the first half of the novel I'm writing right now and there's this part where I need the villains to make their apparition, but I'm having troubles implementing them into the narrative. All the way up to chapter twenty I've focussed the story almost exclusively on the two main characters, but now I need a change of perspective and introduce the three villains; only I'm having difficulty creating the chance and atmosphere without disrupting the plot as I've developped it till now. All the ideas I've taken into account ended up backfiring on me and make their apparition either feel stupid or totally out of place. I'm kinda in a deadlock. Have you ever experienced it before? How did you get out of it?
