8/11 Death isn’t always fatal

I killed off a major Hitwoman character this week, one that’s been in the series since the first book CONFESSSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN.

I MAY have sobbed uncontrollably while writing the death scene.

I literally lost sleep over the death. I just stayed awake half the night mourning the character’s loss, worrying over the reaction of readers, wondering what the hell I’d done.

Finally I decided the character couldn’t die. I rewrote the chapter with the death…then I had to rewrite the chapters leading up to the death. So basically I spent most of the week rewriting because I kept crying over this character’s death.

Writers aren’t crazy or anything….
