Yes, I am scared to kill off my second favourite character. It seems that in the course of the story, it is what must happen. I keep looking for alternate scenarios but they all end up with her dead.
Some advice I read, and there is no shortage of advice online or otherwise, say to kill off the beloved character. Others say don’t listen to rules, do what you want.
It is a real conundrum for me. The hero must have something at stake. Yet, it breaks my heart to take away his great love. Oh, what to do.
I am close to finishing my first draft. I should be done by the end of this month. I will be linking this blog to a writer site, if I can figure out how. So, some of my book may slip through.
What are your thoughts on killing off a major character? Does everyone go through this agony?
I have gotten away from genealogy and ancestral memories for a bit. I will get back eventually. My next book may actually deal with that in a fictionalised sort of way.
Thank you for following and reading. It means a lot.
