I plan on having a person very close to my mc commit suicide relatively early in the story (CH 4, 5, or 6). But i don't know how to make the actual scene itself "shocking". I have the buildup all planned out and even I feel like just the action of the character committing suicide is pretty jarring by itself. How do I describe the actual scene itself and get decent shock factor and maximum empathy for the mc? I suppose some context is needed, huh? For the sake of ambiguity, the person who committed suicide is named "Jane" and the mc is named "John". John walks into Jane's room to find that she was upright in her bed and she had shot herself, in the mouth out the back of the skull.
