What Scares Me Most

wpid-writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2-1.png.pngToday’s challenge may actually require a bit of thought and planning, because as I’ve mentioned before I have little trouble writing in my own voice, but today I’m going to be doing the exact opposite.

We all have anxieties, worries, and fears. What are you scared of? Address one of your worst fears. Today’s twist: Write this post in a style distinct from your own.

———-

Spiders, creepy-crawling on my skin. Ugly moths and millers flying ’round my head. Wild creatures with sharp teeth and long claws.

But these don’t scare me most.

House fires. Burglaries. Hearing strange noises at night when I’m home alone.

But these don’t scare me most.

Starting a new job with new people. Lots of turbulence on a flight. Having stomach trouble during a long trip.

But these don’t scare me most.

What scares me the most, the fear that I keep deep inside, is the all-encompassing fear that every parent lives with from the moment their child is born: the fear of anything bad ever happening to this precious creature who means more than anything else in the world.

That is what scares me most.

  1. I second that fear! Isn’t it amazing how children can turn our self-concerns into concerns about them? We no longer care about our welfare, but theirs is at the top of our list.

  2. What scares me the most is living in a city with hardly any trees.I don’t think this has anything to do with your blog but I just wanted to make a request : My city faced a cyclone which destroyed all the trees so I request you to plant as many saplings and trees as possible.Please do. I have images of my treeless city on my blog.I request you to check them so that even you see how we can lose trees in seconds.
