March 4 2012 Fiction Writing Newsletter


Here are the latest articles from the Fiction Writing site at BellaOnline.com.

Ballistophobia and Other Phobias
Phobias are constant, irrational fears that afflict some people. Their fears should be taken seriously. They should never be made fun of or belittled. But, as writers, we can bless (or curse) our characters with phobias and make the story so much more interesting.

What happens if someone encounters the object of their fear? They could feel dread, nausea, or breathlessness. They could sweat excessively or lose the ability to think or speak clearly. They could lose control and become angry. Detachment from reality is a possibility, as is a full-blown anxiety attack.

Pick one of the following phobias and see if you can create a character with ballistophobia, chiroptophobia, or doraphobia. Have fun!

Multiple Personality Day & Other Peculiar Holidays
zzfiction or historical fiction? Whatever genre you prefer to write in, I'm sure you can find a way to include one of the peculiar holidays that occur in March in your story. It will add a bit of something different to your story.

Who was Casimir Pulaski and why does he deserve to have a holiday named in his honor? In how many different ways will you celebrate Multiple Personality Day? Do you have enough personalities to throw a party for them? How many names do you want to investigate on Fun Facts About Names Day?
