There’s Been A Murder

I really hope you read that in the voice of Taggart.  If not, or if you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m very disappointed.

I just killed someone.

It’s the first time I’ve killed a character I loved, I think.  It’s rubbish, but it needed to be done.

And now, wise words from a man who knows his business when it comes to character assassination (see what I did there?):

“I’ve been killing characters my entire career, maybe I’m just a bloody minded bastard, I don’t know, [but] when my characters are in danger, I want you to be afraid to turn the page (and to do that) you need to show right from the beginning that you’re playing for keeps.”

-George R. R. Martin
