I have so many goals as a writer. One of them is to make my characters SO real, that if they get killed, my reader will cry like I did when Sergeant Quick died in Queen Sheba's Ring by H. Rider Haggard.
I was in love with that character. Not 'in love' like you might think. But I was in love with him as a writer. I loved his character. The way Henry Haggard described him. He was so real.
Yes, maybe to you I am being a little dramatic. But there is nothing quite so tragic as the killing off of a favorite character.
And unfortunately, sometimes it just must be done. I have to do some of that in my current story...
Why am I telling you all this? I'm not really sure... That was just something I wanted to share.
And so here are some things that maybe you, if you are a writer, can relate with.
