Killing Characters Off in Sunday Musings – #MuseItUp #DaffodilAndTheThinPlace

Daffodil and the Thin Place
Daffodil and the Thin Place

The topic for Muse It Up Sunday Musings this week is killing off characters. Here was the brief:

To the best of my knowledge, Shakespeare wrote:To be or not to be
That is the question…

…to kill your character or not to kill your character
That’s an author’s question.

And here’s my response:

‘I don’t usually kill off main characters although a secondary character in ‘Daffodil and the Thin Place’ gets his  comeuppance. I have written some horror and dark stories where the protagonist dies but I don’t think after what’s revealed in the story, the reader would be too disappointed. I like the idea of good winning out in the end’

To find out how the other Muse It Up authors responded, click here to read the Sunday Musings Blog and while you’re on the website, click here to get your copy of the ebook  ‘Daffodil and the Thin Place’. You can then find out who dies!

If you want to read the other stories I referred to, ‘The Game’ can be found in the speculative fiction anthology ‘Body-Smith 401, which can be found here  and ‘The Appropriate Pen’, which can be found in the horror anthology, ‘Shrouded by Darkness’, which can be found here
