Budgie’s Journal #14 – A Time to Kill

So I’m contemplating murder.

Not real murder, of course. I’m talking about a character in one of books I want to put out by year’s end. I probably won’t pull the metaphoric trigger on them, but this has me thinking of all those I’ve killed in the past.

Not everyone lives, especially when you put them in life-or-death scenarios. Killing someone off every now and then is necessary to keep things from getting stale or for shock value if your story calls for a shock.

There have been those who died needlessly in my past works. There’s also occasions where I felt like changing their fate in a rewrite. And even now, I’m thinking about killing again, putting another imaginary departed soul into my nightmares.

I’d be such a fickle serial killer.

  1. I’ve always felt more works need arbitrary deaths. Like in real life, someone just dies and it’s like “Well fuck, he’s dead. Time to get on with my day…”
