Blind fear, that seeing reason leads, finds safer
footing than blind reason stumbling without fear: to
fear the worst oft cures the worse.
Trolius & Cressida, Act 3; Scene 2
Twitter is fun, especially when there’s interaction from other people. I try to participate in the post ‘games’ and thought I would share with you what my Twitter friend, Christine put up for October, Day 2: What is your MC’s biggest fear?
As #WheelerNovel opens, Loren’s biggest fear is that she isn’t good enough to take over as her team’s leader. After falling for Graham, she fears his rejection.
With #WheelerInDarkness, the second book of the series, Loren doesn’t tell Graham she’s being stalked, mostly to not make him worry, but also because she’s in denial. Saying it out loud would make it too real. When Graham returns, their mutual fear of commitment overshadows their feelings for each other, leading to an end of the relationship… maybe?
I don’t want to give too much away so I’ll end with throwing the question back on you, my dear friends:
What’s YOUR biggest fear?
What’s mine? The usual: inadequacy, loss of family and security. Deep down though, I’m afraid of what will happen to my child when I’m not here anymore. That fear is sharper than anything else.
