One of the most POWERFUL scenes you can have is the death scene. And I'm not talking about killing off Nameless Character #23. I am talking about your main character or one of your supporting cast characters. Players and readers form a bond with these characters over the course of your plot. When someone of importance dies it should be a meaningful, and emotional scene. The emotion could be sadness, horror, or even glee if people hated that particular character. In this exercise, you are going to write a death scene for one of your favorite characters. It can be ANY kind of death scene. A battle. Old age. An accident. A dream. But this character needs to DIE. SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT Make sure to display the character's personality in their final moments. Even when they are dying, their quirks, opinions, fears, and more will still hold true. Don't get too poetic or use a lot of purple prose with the scene. These can distract the readers from what is going on and diminish the impact of the death. It's all in the little details. Breathing, feelings, touches. These things add to the scene. Don't drag it out forever. If a character is laying there dying, are they really going to have the strength for an hour long session of dialog? If they are bleeding out, are they actually going to be able to keep fighting off that bear?
