This is like my third thread I’ve started in the past two days, so I’m sorry!! Preptober’s got me brainstorming up a storm and I don’t have a lot of people I can talk to outside of WW for feedback… So you’re getting all my questions, sorry!
Here’s the problem: my M.C. is killing off EVERYONE. Like, whenever I feel like I need conflict, she volunteers and the poor guy standing closest to her is dead before you can say boo.
Well, not quite that dramatic, but she’s killed three people seperately since the beginning of the novel, and we’re on chapter 7. Literally a death every other chapter. And all the deaths are kinda important for the plot to progress but her reaction to each of them is all the same:
“Oh, shit. What have I done?” You know, eyes well up with tears, the whole shebang.
She’s supposed to be horrified by death. Is there any other reaction you guys can think of besides this, though? Or maybe do you think I should cut down on the deaths? (lol I’ve found that killing people off is my favorite part of writing this novel so far though but still)
