Write what scares you

1. Warm up


What are you afraid of? What chills you to the bone or makes your heart race? Make a list of your fears or things that scare you. Aim for at least 10-15 fears, ranging from the common (ex. spiders) to larger issues (nuclear war) to the personalized (never being published). If you find it difficult to write 15 fears, include phobias or fears of others. Get creative and invent a few for...

Tausha and 3 other people liked J.H. Moncrieff's review of Dead over Heels:
Dead over Heels by Theresa Braun
"It's not often you come across horror with this much heart. Theresa Braun's story starts out quirky, charming, a bit humorous and tongue-in-cheek. We meet the protagonist, a terminally single woman who's not above casting a few spells in order to..." Read more of this review »

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Thich Nhat Hanh
“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh
“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation

Henry David Thoreau
“Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? Men generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them. They think that, if they should resist, the remedy would be worse than the evil. But it is the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil. It makes it worse. Why is it not more apt to anticipate and provide for reform? Why does it not cherish its wise minority? Why does it cry and resist before it is hurt? Why does it not encourage its citizens to be on the alert to point out its faults, and do better than it would have them?”
Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience and Other Essays
