ABC 123(4)s of NaNo: K is for Killing Them Off


K is for killing them off. While it’s not always easy to rid yourself of a character, it is strangely gratifying to play God and end them. Not to mention a death can add tons of pages to your count from the actual even to a funeral to reminiscing later in the story.  Be creative with it. Impale them on a picket fence, have them find a long lost landmine in the middle of the school playground, mixer malfunction, death by meat tenderizer, nail polish ingestion, eaten by hippo.  The possibilities are endless!

Day 11: Have you guys gone to any local write-ins yet? Search your area to see what’s going on. Even if you’re not much of a people person (us writer types can be quite the introverts), it’s nice to just sit and write with a group of people who are having the same struggles as you are. Not to mention you can’t slack off (much) when others are watching!
