I’m trying to write a “scared” scene. By which I mean that one of my characters is scared, and in reading it you’re scared too.
By golly that’s hard! I’m sifting through the thesaurus so often I’m considering bookmarking it, trying to find just the right turn of phrase and twist of adjective. Of course, working so hard at it probably means that this will be the part that makes me bash my head against the floor when I go to edit it, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try now! (Doesn’t it?) I want it to be good, even while I’m despairing entirely. ^_^
Anyhow, back to my eight hundred words of pain and suffering. By which I mean MY pain and suffering, my character is only going through a little dread. Mwahahahah. Ahem.
I”m gonna give up on it soon…..
