Working on a new book, I'm thinking of ways to pit the characters values against each other. Like what if she discovered her best friend was embezzling money from a charity? Or he found out that his brother was molesting a neighbor boy? What if a cop had an opprotunity to lie - and without that lie, a person who was guility of something else would go free? Situations like that are so interesting. Of the four kinds of conflicts: man vs. man, man vs. nature, man vs. society - this is man against himself.
