If you’re writing a story with a lot of characters, how do you introduce them all without making it feel like you’re going down a list?

I need to kill of a character to advance the plotline. However, I’m worried about it being written off as manpain. It was just the character’s time to die. The character is going to have flaws and such (I’m in the beginning stages of writing&planning), so they are definitely not going to be a Mary Sue. Advice?

legit-writing-tips: It’s not just about whether they have flaws or not, or whether they’re a Mary Sue. What’s important is to consider whether this character has their own arc. You say it’s this character’s time to die – so why… Read moreI need to kill of a character to advance the plotline. However, I’m worried about it being written off as manpain.

legit-writing-tips: You’ll get different answers from different people, but I’m of the opinion that exclamation marks should be used in dialogue only, with a few rare exceptions. Interesting point! I use them often, because they convey the sense of energy… Read moreSomewhere, once upon a time, when I was just starting out as a writer, I read that you should never use exclamation marks/points.
