I’ve just killed someone. Well, a fictional someone. A fictional character that I quite liked.
She was young. And sympathetic. I wanted her to live, but that seemed…so unlikely. I’ve killed characters before…this one just bothered me more than usual.
Maybe I’ve watched too much of Stranger than Fiction.
Am I killing a character because it makes sense or for shock value or to end the story when I can’t think of anything else?
How do you know?
How many characters have you killed? Do you ever bad about it?
