I've asked this before, but I like to revisit it every once and a while to see if anyone has new things out there.
One of the questions asked of the heroines is what scares you. I started thinking about that. What really scares me? Here’s my list: something happening to my husband, son or granddaughters (or for that matter anyone I care about), a tornado hitting my area, snakes, not pleasing the Lord (He’s done so much for me), not being able to write a book (drying up), rats, not having a clean toilet (no, not really, I just threw that in to see if you were still reading), and probably a lot of other things I can’t think of because I haven’t had them happen to me or someone I know.
I will say researching different methods of murder that I wouldn’t want to be murdered or left in a casket alive underground. I could go on and on, but I’m sure you are ready instead to share what scares you.
Also, can a hero have the same fears as a heroine might and still be a hero? Women can be afraid of a lot but so often we don't want the men in our lives to be afraid like we are. This goes even more for reading a story. How fearless should our heroes be?
So fess up—what scares you?
