How do you decide when it’s time to kill off your characters?
www.FictionAddiction.net had a great forum topic on this subject (Read More… ). I decided to use my blog today to address it.
I’m a killer. I’ll say it bravely and I let my readers know that I’ll kill characters easily in a heartbeat when I feel that it would move the story forward or liven up the action.
Sex sells, but killing keeps them reading, LOL.

It’s not that I have these intentions in real life. Really not. I’ve been killing mad but not enough to hurt anyone.
But I always say I’m bad on paper and good in life.
I’d love to hear your views on killing off your characters.
