It happened. She died. One of my main characters, that is. I've been putting this part off forever because there's so much riding on it.
My previous note says: She dies now.
Don't panic, I've expounded on that. Today I sat down and wrote the scene. Then I re-read it and rolled my eyes. It's very first draft and needs an arena-size bin of polish applied. I'm working on it now and, slowly, it's coming around.
You know, grief is complicated. There are five stages, which can happen in any order. There's no right or wrong, since everyone reacts in different ways. Now that's what makes writing these parts interesting.
And getting a fresh take is even more interesting. I'm excited to see what you come up with.
Soooo . . . if you're up to another one, how would you write a physical and/or emotional description of grief?
