There are several things you need to consider before you write about violence:
- your genre;
- your target audience;
- whether it would advance the plot;
- how it would affect your character;
- are you comfortable with writing it.
Yes, we should strive to go out of our comfort zones, but what if you are so uncomfortable, you just can’t write about it?
There are two ways this can go: skip the violence or practice, practice, practice until you are comfortable with penning it down.
Is there anything you’d like to add to that list? Write it in the comments!
