25 Ways to Bleep! Your Characters

When I first started writing, I found it emotionally difficult to hurt my characters. Needless to say, the first book I ever wrote is unreadable--and I'm glad it will remain that way, thanks to obsolete technology. Writers need to develop a certain amount of sadism to develop conflict and stakes for their characters. I found this great list of ways to mess with your characters right here. Enjoy! Heh heh heh....

P.S. One of the commenters just gave me a new definition for a writer: someone who is mean to her imaginary friends.
