WRITING YOUR FEARS (Writing Exercise)

“There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have of them” ~Andre Gide

It is the time of year where we think about the things that have spooked our history. We dress children as ghosts and witches, decorating with pumpkins… traditions, transmorphed, as old as fear itself.

We like to be scared. And we like to tell the stories of our fright in the comfort of a well lighted home at night, but…It is still after you.

What are you most afraid of, really? Imagine it in vivid: smells, sounds, tastes, etc. What is its demeanor toward you? What gestures does your fear make? What does it embody? What are its motives towards you? Re-write your Fear, this Monster as yourself. Or rather, re-write yourself as the Monster Fear. What are you after now?  MUWHAHA…
