Seven Writing Links -- volume 76

I read my latest chapter to my local critique group last night.  I'd already extensively revised it once before in order to add more conflict to the scene, but after listening to the comments from my CPs, it's apparent I'm still going too easy on my protagonist.  So this weekend, I'm going to add even more conflict to the scene.

Question:  What's the best way to make myself so angry that it will feel good to dump more problems on my protagonist?

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links.
