Hello everyone!! I had a question that I was wondering if you guys could give your thoughts on. When do you feel it's appropriate to kill off a character? And why? What factors come into play when deciding wether or not to kill a character, or even if they should be killed at all. For example, I have a character in one of my stories that I'm sort of having trouble deciding. One reason against it is, why her? What exactly would her death do to the characters involved and the story. I find that, sometimes, characters are killed off just to bring about a certain reaction from the reader, or viewer, or what have you. Not really for the good of the story, but just for a shock value. I'm having trouble with this whole thing and was wondering if you guys would maybe share your experiences with this particular topic in creating stories. Thanks!!
