Everyone is scared of something. Whether it's your typical claustrophobia/death/heights,etc. or something more specific or uncommon, we all have something that churns our fears. Maybe something that gives us nightmares.
Call this post part curiosity and part research. As a writer who likes to write the scary, creepy stuff, I love to tap into what makes people squirm - and scream. Stephen King's IT would never have been so popular if so many people didn't find clowns terrifying. In my current WIP I have a scene with a picture that moves and more than one beta commented that this is something that has always really creeped them out. Which got me thinking about what other little nuances make people scared.
So you tell me - what are you afraid of?
