As the title asks. I HATE writing the typical protagonist types. I simply am bored to tears writing them and can never finish anything with a typical "good guy" main character. What do I like to write, you ask? Villains, and not psychopaths and criminals. There are a lot of stories such as Lolita and a large number of works by Edgar Allen Poe that have MCs who are murderers, pedophiles or criminals. Those, however, are not the kind of "villains" I enjoy writing. I like to write the political, master-manipulator type of villains, who often times have supernatural abilities and are out to expand their personal power. Characters with grandiose goals such as world domination, becoming a god, or something equally large. I am not entertained by the antics of small scale criminals or heaven forbid heroes. I like writing the scheming, backstabing, manipulative types with lofty, grandiose goals. The kind of characters that usually end up as antagonists. This does NOT mean I like writing 2D villains. One of my favorite part of writing villains is that I get to develop the dark mind and flesh out why one would even want to achieve such a megalomanical goal in the first place. My villains have backstories and many reasons WHY they want to take over the world, or become a god, or whatever other lofty goal they may have. I am not talking cartoon supervillains. They are still fleshed out, deep characters like any other, and many could be considered sympathetic in more ways then one. However, I am talking about the kind of characters who you would normally see cast as the villain in the typical fantasy and SF stories out there. Issue? There is absolutely nothing in the literary world that I know of with the kind of MCs I enjoy writing. There are a fair number of "evil" protagonists, but almost all of them that I know of are outside of my preferred genres(Sci-Fi and Fantasy) and are usually murderers, pedophiles, criminals and other "smaller scale" kind of evils. The only protagonists I can think of that even come close to what I like to write are Lelouch and Light Yagami, both characters from anime, which is a medium that is VERY different from written works. Since I don't have the art talent to make my own manga or the personal wealth to hire an artist, I can't turn any of my ideas into a manga or an anime. So I am stuck with the dilemma...stories that follow the characters I like to write either flat out don't exist, or at least are fairly obscure if they do. In other words, there is essentially no "market" for what I wish to write. Everybody loves a hero. People want to read the tale of Harry Potter or Katniss Everdeen. Nobody wants to read the story of Lord Voldemort or President Snow. So, what should I do? Should I write what I want to write but just put it out on the net or something and not worry of there is a market for it? Or perhaps there is something marketable in the kind of characters I like to write that just hasn't been tapped yet? Maybe I'm actually onto something big here and am treading on relatively unexplored waters? Or maybe there is some stories out there that follow the kind of characters I enjoy writing and the market is just unknown to me but still exists? Any thoughts, opinions or advice would be appreciated.
