We reported a few days ago that Christopher Paolini would be participating in an online webchat with Newsweek on August 24th.
Corunna, Cananda: Are you going to kill off more major characters? And how do you feel after you do that? Is it like murder? Thank you for answering!
Christopher Paolini: It’s very difficult for me to kill off characters. I grow attached to them. However I believe that for the story to move forward, new characters must be introduced and old characters must die. Not that it’s easy but it must happen.
That chat transcript is now online and can be read here. Christopher answer’s fan’s questions about Eldest, writing the trilogy, his opinion on the movie, and more. It’s definitely an interesting read!
