In 2020 I’m answering a list of 52 journal questions. Read about it here.
Write about something that scared you.
Confession. I scare easily. It doesn’t take much for me to get a fright, probably because I have such a vivid imagination (great for writing, not so much for the grey hairs, lol).
What is really funny about my imagination is that it must have a really close relationship with my subconscious, because if I watch anything even a teeny bit scary, I will wake during the night with nightmares. I don’t even have to find it scary when I watch it. But during the night my brain does weird things and I will wake screaming out loud, tears streaming down my face and literally frozen in place, unable to move…until my brain fully wakes up anyway.
The Hub, being witness to my night terrors, is wonderful at making sure I don’t watch anything remotely scary. If he and/or the Barbarians are watching something he deems to be nightmare worthy his rule is they have to pause the movie if I walk in (as our lounge room is open plan with the kitchen this does happen).
Do you scare easily?
