You often hear about how mental illness is being overused or somehow romanticized in literature these days, and even though I can’t actually disagree with that, I don’t think it’s something wrong to write about.
But I’ve seen many writers go through an amazing plot with well developed characters just to fall into the trap of the consequences of those conflicts and whatever happened in them, especially in a series of books. Characters suffer just as much as real people, and they are going to suffer from everything that you put into their lives. Sometimes they change for good, sometimes they change for bad.
And as a disclaimer, let me just add that I do not support any kind of good word about mental illness because if you suffer from it you should get help and it should not become something people seek just because they think it’s cool. Romanticizing mental illness is something I dislike and it’s very offensive to a lot of people, and you shouldn’t do it. It’s not something pretty or trendy. This stuff is serious.
Dealing with tragic events isn’t something easy, simple or fast. Remember to give it some thought, because it will define what type of character you’re writing and how the reader sees him/her. How will a funeral, for example, affect your MC? Will she/he even attend it and if not, what does this say about him/her?
