Well, the title basically says it all. I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this, but I'm pretty sure it is. I'm writing a story, and in the beginning, a very tragic event takes place, involving the deaths of thousands of people (explosions, fire, chaos). I'm really bad at writing scenes unless I have a character to follow around. So I thought I'd make one. Here's where I need your opinion. Is it okay to create a character only to have them killed? Basically, the reader would be following the girl around in her final hours of life, though they don't even know who she is. And then chapter one would start with all new characters, in a completely different place. So I'm wondering if it would just be too strange to do that. Please write back soon.
