Getting the bad guys right

For me, the hardest part of the story is the antagonist’s motivation. I want to make sure their rationale make sense, and the things they do. Not just arbitrary actions, but well-thought-out reasoning. And to know that antagonists aren’t always “bad guys” – they just need to be a problem for the protagonist. And even if they are “bad guys” – it’s good to remember they they don’t consider themselves such.
