Three hours pass, and you've finished mapping your newest character. You've written an outline for three chapters told from her point of view, in which the readers will come to know her, admire her, and if you're lucky, even make a few memes out of her to pass around on Twitter. In short, this character is fantastic.

Obviously, you'll need to kill her.

She slips while walking over a bridge and dies.

She's poisoned by a character you'll introduce a page ahead of time, then never reference again.
