Torturing our characters…oh dear. This should be an excellent conversation. >:)
Friday the 13th, a day that brings horror and terror into people’s lives. Or is that the movie series? Our authors write a variety of genres, from supernatural to horror to fantasy to military sci-fi to children’s books. Sounds like the perfect mix to talk about torture in fiction. I mean, children are torture, aren’t they? I know, I have one. But I’m just kidding. The question is, just how many of us could torture a character?
Question 54 – It’s Friday the 13th. Horror is a popular genre. Could you torture one of your characters?
I could. In fact, depending on which character it is, I might enjoy it. But really, we torture our characters all the time, in one way or another. It’s what makes an interesting story.
Yes. I don’t feel good about it, but sometimes that’s where the story goes.
