Okay, I better explain that title, right? And perhaps the picture… Who am I kidding? It’s pretty self-explanatory.
Yep, even though I was a bitch of an author to some of my characters in EVO Shift, not many died. Not many in comparison to the 15 in EVO Nation. Yep, 15! Some were minor characters, but still- 15! Technically, there is more if you add in the faceless, nameless characters, but let’s not.
Now that I am drafting EVO Ghost, book three, the time has come for me to make the hard choices. Hard because my characters are my babies, and hard because someone needs to die. *Insert evil laugh here*.
Is it wrong that I enjoy a good, poignant death scene? I love fiddling with the narrative to create the perfect boiling pot of emotion. I want my readers to feel the death, whether it’s sadness at the loss of a beloved character, or euphoria as I dish out just desserts. It’s all in the name of writing fun.
On a final note, that meme was not created by me. I actually stumbled across it. Coincidence? I think not!
