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

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.)

I'm so freaking tired of trying to figure out whether I'm interacting with real people or not.

So freaking tired.
As a funny aside, I'm interested in writing about this and messaged someone on FB this morning about it.

But because I can't message from my professional account, only my personal account, he suspected me of being a troll and angrily blocked me.

I'm going to assuage myself by taking in the lovely view out my window right now.

This thread is about archaeological artifacts and how we think about them. Heck the first step is to even figure out what to name them. I’m gonna pull out two examples: Athenian ceramic vessels and Paleolithic stone tools to think about “what’s in a name?”

Archaeologists have to deal with all kinds of artifacts. Usually they’re even just fragments of an artifact.

To be honest, a lot of times we can’t really identify these artifacts or how they were used. But, we’ve gotta call them something

Sometimes it seems easy. Take a look at the ceramic objects in the image below. What would you call these objects? And unless you’re already familiar with Greek ceramics, I bet there’s one that you aren’t sure what to call it.
