My body count (i.e. number of dead people contributing to my story conflicts) is really stacking up in 'Reluctant Heir, Passionate Affair'. A sign of laziness perhaps?
I'm currently struggling with Bryony Green's comments on ihearts about the Modern Heat hero not necessarily being as tortured as other series' heroes. Yet how to balance this with making sure the conflicts run really deep? Should he be just mildly tortured?A little bit upset? I think maybe it's to do with a lighter touch. If anyone's got any ideas I'd be interested to hear them.
Anyway, so far this is the body count tally for my WIPs:
Maverick Millionaire - 1
Secret Billionaire - 1
Reluctant Heir, Passionate Affair - a whopping 3!
I do have several (now put aside) stories containing no dead people so I'm not sure why I've suddenly gone so morbid.
Have any of you reached a higher body count than me? Do tell :-)
