Have you ever killed your main protagonist?

Recommended Posts

i think the question I would ask is - why do you want to kill your m/c off? 


Is it to conclude the story once and for all?


Is to motivate another character to greater and good things?


If you will do - do it with a purpose.


I can near to it in my last work. But I realised,  them having a heart attack was more useful for the story to move forward. So they got out of jail.


Just be careful.

I'm having a discussion on FB with another writer. He wrote himself into a corner with a mentoring character and the hero would never have stepped out to lead if this character was still alive. "A righteous death, " I said. It revealed the evil connivance of the villain and raised the stakes.
