12 Ways To Kill A Character

Kill your darlings. Murder your darlings. Or maybe a character isn’t exactly your darling. In that case, you have an even easier job ahead of you.

By no means is this list extensive or exhaustive. It’s merely suggestive. Not in any particular order either. Like all the lists that have come before it.

I won’t get into too much detail. That’s what your imagination is for.

  • Stabbing
  • Shooting
  • Choking
  • Pushing (off a building)
  • Burning
  • Poisoning
  • Drowning
  • Crashing (a vehicle into him or her)
  • Beating
  • Bombing
  • Hanging
  • Eating (them alive after you cook everything well)

I’m not a serial killer. I’m a writer. And I haven’t killed too many characters.
