Fears and The Antagonist

The following is a list of fears written on a bar napkin:

Love, Loss, Intimacy, vulnerability, being myself to the world, shame, success, singing, writing, my loved ones dying, knowing I am dying, other people, stupid people with guns (or bombs).

I’m not going to transpose the other napkins, some of them have answers, some have more questions and fears.

I have been thinking about my fears a lot lately, and also trying to figure out the antagonists in my stories. I got some good advice, to look at myself. Everyone has a dark side, everyone. If I explore my darkness, and the darkness of others, then I will learn more about the world, and be a better, nicer person. ┬áThat’s the thought, anyway.
