Phobias… An Allergy of the Mind?

Phobias… An Allergy of the Mind?


I love enjoy writing flash fiction. I enjoy the spontaneity of the experience and the instantaneous rush of exhilaration I can experience when the micro-fiction is completed.

So what’s teh problem?

I think I might be a tad scriptophobic…

… maybe more than a tad.

I seem to find fulfillment in the beginning processes of the thoughts a writing a true novel, but as soon as the time comes to begin the sot-and-do-it portion of the event, I find other things to do.

A new word: scripto-novella-phobic… the fear of beginning to tackle a true novel

Written for The Daily Post:  Allergic. I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My chosen topics are as follows:  (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.

I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
