Writing 101 – Day 17. One of My Worst Fears

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 distinct style from your own.

I am doing something exciting today! I will go on a roller-coaster! A real one, very steep and breathtaking!! Yey! I so can do this! I am so brave and don’t care that my stomach will turn inside out, and upside down. I am ever so thrilled and enthusiastic about it! What a great experience! Look forward to it so much! I can do it!!

Well no, I can’t.

So much for my fake style and enthusiasm. One thing I just cannot fake is being enthusiastic about something I don’t like. Even more so when it is about something I am afraid of.

As another blogger said: funny thing, fear. While I hate roller-coasters, I have to get my son to go on them, plus make this sound like he’ll be having time of his life. Difficult one: he’s as worried as I am! But one day he’ll grow up to be a man – would I like him to be a coward? Certainly not, so off you go to that amazing ride!!

And for me this will always be one of those things that just don’t agree with me. Just can’t bloody do it. Or maybe I can, but am so scared and hate it so much that there is no point in persevering.

…I did go on a steep roller-coaster once. I kept my eyes shut all the time, though. Does that mean I’ve overcome my fear?

Don’t think so, but would be nice to hear what my readers will say in reply to this question! 🙂
