Oops! You're dead. Or not.

Occasionally I just kill off someone and then magically they reappear later on in the book.  Sometimes it happens.  

On page 76 I killed a character or, at least, implied they were dead. Then on page 348 VOILA they were resurrected and having a conversation. 

Oh the magic that is second draft, how I loath and love thee!

Oops. I hate when that happens. Bob's dead but stay tuned for his mysterious resurrection later in the book. I also hate when I'm writing along and totally forget about a pivotal character. 200 pgs later I'm all 'what ever happened to Frank?' I must've needed him once, but then he disappeared.

I have never had this happen to me, least not yet. But then again, I haven't really killed people off much in my MS's. I gotta work on that. ;-)

Love the picture. Too funny!!

LOL. Love the picture! I don't kill many people in my writing but they do take on a life of their own.
