Internet Inspiration: Explaining Fears

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Steven Colbert was interviewing Millie Bobby Brown, the young actress from Stranger Things, and they started talking about fears. She lists off a few things including bungalows. Colbert seems thrown by this because he asks her if a bungalow has a different meaning than what he’s thinking. She explains that she knows exactly what a bungalow is, a house with no stairs, and has a very specific reason she fears them. She feels safer with stairs as they provide an escape route that a one floor home doesn’t. I love the idea of being so aware of your fears. not just knowing that you’re afraid of something but knowing exactly why it scares you. Write a scene that goes into the reasoning behind one of your character’s fears.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
