Hello and welcome back.
Today I would like to write about death scenes. This can be done from the point of view of the person dying or from the people witnessing the person dying.
From the point of view of the person dying can be done several ways. One way is to have the person as a basket case. He would probably be scared as to what waits for him on the other side of this life. Is there an after life or is there nothing after death? Will he be reincarnated and get a chance to live again?
If the dying person has lived a life where she was good to other people, she followed the teachings of her religion she might very well be looking forward to meeting whatever deity she worshiped while alive.
If the person lived an evil life, he might be scared as to what punishment awaits him in the afterlife.
The character might also be feeling relief that their suffering from a painful terminal illness is soon to be over.
Another way to write a death scene is that the person is looking back on their life with regrets. I remember reading about nurses who work in palliative care units where the number one regret of a person dying is that they didn’t live a life that was true to themselves as opposed to what other thought they should do.
From the point of view of the family or friends of the person dying this can also be done in different ways. Usually the family will be distraught over losing a loved one. So show the family and friends crying. They’ll be hugging each other possibly.
You can also have someone secretly being happy that the person is dying. They might be collecting a big inheritance and are looking forward to the windfall of money coming their way. This can be the result of the one collecting the inheritance having murdered the person via poison or some other way.
Hopefully this helps, have a great day.
