Do you avoid confrontation?
I'm really, really good at that. I've created a life of non-confrontation. There are times I'd rather plug my fingers in my ears and screech, "La La La La" than face something difficult.
I have noticed I do this with my characters, too. I'm too nice. I don't want them to suffer. But sometimes, for the sake of the story, I need to drag them to hell and back.
In writing and life, do you prefer to La La La La or do you throw down your gauntlet and just go for it?
