scary place. I’m not sure yet if I want it realistic or not. Probably not. It will be a place that doesn’t exist in our realm of understanding.
So, I decided to make a list of what scares me the most. And I am hoping that each one of you who reads this blog will help me by telling me what you are most afraid of. Name your top five if you like. Or one. It doesn’t matter.
Here is my list:
(not in any particular order, just what comes to me first)
1. Seeing someone I love suffer cruelly and not being able to help them. (I have nightmares of being trapped in a holding cell, POW or something, with my children or husband in the next cell being tortured, and having to watch.)
4. The boogie man (this one I thought I was over, and then I spent the evening alone in my house without my big strong husband to protect me…maybe I should re-entitle this one : noises I don't recognize) *
5. At first glance, corpses. (yes, those still scare me)
(notice I didn’t mention death. Been through that too much. Doesn’t scare me anymore.)
*also, what would the boogie man look like?
I really think brainstorming helps the creative process. Especially when others are involved. It always interests me what other people think of that I look over completely.
Now to your list…
What are you afraid of? Let it be person, place, thing, environment…food…bugs. =)
Oh, I forgot one BIG one... DROWNING! I hate water and small places...and crowded places...
boy I'm scared of a lot of things =) Not really. Well, maybe. Sometimes.
