Good Morning. In our stories, we're supposed to present our characters challenges. We're supposed to block their path at every turn allowing them to fight to get their end result. This provides the internal and external conflicts. And if that doesn't work, I usually light something on fire.
So far in my books I have:
shot three people
whipped a slave (remember I write historical romance)
thrown a woman, eight months pregnant, down the stairs
beat a man senseless
given someone a heart attack
brought two ex-lovers back
given someone post traumatic stress syndrome
stolen a baby
And you thought I just wrote romance...
Tell me -- What have you done to your characters lately?
