Just curious, does anyone write things that go beyond their comfort zone and leave you feeling icky and unsettled? I find it's an interesting way to make your writing more raw and evoke real emotions. I'm writing a scene in which my main character Noël is leading a small band of mercenaries on a mission. While being chased by the undead, one of the mercenaries is injured in the wagon, and Noël says that they need to ditch her off the wagon since her injuries can't be fixed and her weight will slow them down. Everyone is reluctant, including the injured woman, but in the end, they throw her off kicking and screaming as she falls victim to the undead. Just talking about it makes me feel upset! What are your thoughts on writing beyond your comfort zone?
