Ethics in Fiction: Don't Glamorize Murder by Deborah J. Ross
Deborah J. Ross has written a very thoughtful piece on how not to glamorize murder in stories. As crime writers we tend to drop bodies all over the place without considering the consequences to the survivors or even those doing the killing. Some writers even enjoy pouring the blood and guts all over the page, the grosser the better. So maybe it's time to sit back and consider writing your stories from another angle? Food for thought.
