Antagonist (Counter-Pointed Character) Excel Workbook

Inspiration comes from many places and recently it's gotten me onto an outline-generating kick. This outline is another three act structure but this time tailored to your story's antagonist. I consider the word "antagonist" a slang word for a character counter-pointed to the protagonist. This equates to the antagonist being the only character that must be as developed as the story's main character. Therefore, unlike the side character outline I created (available here {X}) this outline isn't condensed. Similar to the side character outline, however, this outline's short-hand spreadsheet offers questions tailored to focus on the antagonist's relationship to the protagonist. Whether this connection shared between the counter pointed characters is a rivalry, entirely circumstantial or destined, you'll be able to outline every inch of the relationship.
