Evocative Author Interviews - Would You Kill off Your Ex-Lover in Your Novels?



Authors are an interesting bunch. We already know their brains work differently than non-authors. After all they create characters, then throw them into settings and situations that can range from torturous to glorious. And after the characters struggle for a while, the authors decide their fate. 

But what are Authors really capable of? Over 25 writers participated in this question: Would you kill off your ex-lover in your novel? The result... Be careful who you date.

Guess how many would do it... and gladly.

Author Name

If an EX broke your heart, would you kill "the darling" in a novel?

Where can you connect with this author?

Cheryl R Cowtan
Depends on whether he maliciously broke my heart or just trundled on my love because he was ignorant and young, and whether I was a difficult partner. That said... can I think of a couple EXs I want to "put down"? Yeah, maybe...
Carmen Madison
I guess it would depend on how bad the break up was.

I wouldn't do it because of heartbreak, but maybe I'd do it because of betrayed friendship.

I might have to do that. It sounds cathartic!

A lot of my work is motivated by heart-breaks of the past, but the mood is one of sadness, not vengeance.

How to Use MS OneNote to Organize Writing Research and Novel Outlines for Writers

Let’s Get Organized 
Writers take a gazillion notes.I don’t have to tell you this, because you know all about it. You also know how difficult it is to organize notes, search through paper notes, and sometimes even find all the notes you've written. 

In this day and age, going digital is the best way to keep track of your notes. If organized properly, digital notes are sortable, searchable, editable, accessible from anywhere, and light as a feather to carry around.

In this blog, I'm going to show you how to be note-efficient.

Evocative Author Interviews - 40 Authors were asked "If your best friend left her diary at your house, would you snoop for writing ideas?" And they answered...

Where do authors get their ideas? Do you have an author friend? Do you ever feel like a science experiment around him/her? Well there might be a reason for that. Most authors are very in tune with people. They might not like them much, but they spend a lot of time observing them. This helps authors come up with characterization for their novels. 

But how far would an author really go? Over 40 writers participated in this question: If your best friend left her diary at your house, would you snoop for writing ideas? The result... Be careful where you leave your diary!

Guess how many would do it... and gladly - anything in the name of idea gathering. Some would just do it for fun!
