Who lives, who dies, when you tell your stories?

Or: How I think about dead parents, lovers & friends, both in backstory and in the course of the action. #Meta #Craft


If you’re not familiar with the concept of Fridging, please go here:…
I try really hard to never fridge. I don’t kill named characters for other character’s emotional development.
A death, be it in action or backstory, has to be plausible, and while the characters REACT to it, it’s not to cause reaction.
I don’t kill when they become inconvenient.
(Well, except one time, there’s this one character I killed because I was tired of their bullshit & I wanted them dead. I had to make it worth it, despite the mess.
Killing them was inconvenient for me, as writer, but I hated that character, so it was totally worth it.)
