In the past, I have been told that I spare no character. They're right, I don't shelter my mc's. If something bad is going to happen, a mc stands as much of a chance for it to occur to them as a minor character.
Yesterday, I had an idea for something to happen in BWM, nothing as horrible as you might expect. And true to form, I'm not going to be protective. The bad thing is the intended character is the most innocent of the lot. Don't worry, I'll keep that in mind. I'm not completely heartless. This will take a little research so I know my boundaries.
It's nice to get ideas for future chapters while composing current ones.
