Killing off your characters
No matter what type of novel you are writing – thriller, mystery, romance – there may come a time when you need to kill off one or more of your characters.
This is challenging for some writers who grow attached to their characters. It can be equally hard for the readers when a favorite character dies.
I guess before I delve into this topic, I should divide these characters into two categories – minor characters and main characters.
It is quite easy to kill off minor character. Many times you and the reader are not as attached to them. I always think of a minor character as the first person killed in a horror movie. They are not usually well developed. No one has had a chance to really get to know and like this character before they die.
