The reason I ask is because killing is an act of its own. Creating is another. For me to create something is to look after it. My points are the following: what does killing a character in a story entail? and 1) would you agree that one of the reasons one might want to write is because they get to kill their characters? Just like a power trip one writes because one knows one can get rid off their characters? or 2) I write because I know I get to keep my characters hence the importance of writing and last but not least 3) if you had to reverse the act of ''killing a character in a story'' into a reality act will you be able to do the same?
