Do you know the right way to kill a character?

Are you writing a mystery, who-done-it, legal thriller, or suspense story?

Then remember the devil is in the details.

In death, like pregnancy, there are no half-measures. After reading an article by Matt Knight, killing off one of my characters is more complicated than I realized. 

 

What did I learn from Matt?

  • There is a big difference between Murder, Manslaughter, and Homicide. And I need to understand the difference!

Feel free to save the above quick reference. 

His article goes into much more detail. I recommend you click and read. You never know when one of your characters might go off the rails and kill someone.
