I'm working on my first novel and I realised that I resist the idea of hurting my characters too much – at the same time finding it necessary, as success shouldn't come too easy to the protagonists. As I'm halfway through NOS4A2 now, I started to wonder: does it come naturally with the flow of the story to hurt or even kill off characters that you find sympathetic or is it hard for you? If so, how do you deal with it? Thanks.
I am a cruel, joyless man and my heart is a block of poisoned, toxic ice.
Also, no one wanted to buy my book MR HAPPY HAS A NICE DAY. I don’t know why.
