April 8 2012 Fiction Writing Newsletter


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

Ichthyophobia and Other Fears
Phobias are constant, irrational fears that afflict some people. Their fear should be taken seriously. The person should never be made fun of or belittled because of their fear. 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 out one of the following phobias ichthyophobia, myrmecophobia, or pediculophobia and see if you can create a character that is afflicted with one or more of them.

Dyngus Day & Other Daffy Holidays
The month of April has many daffy holidays. Whether you prefer to write romance or action, mysteries or thrillers, fantasy or science fiction, I'm sure you can find at least one that will inspire you.


Who will you hose down with water on Dyngus Day? Do you have an antique to cherish on National Cherish an Antique Day? Will your name be mentioned hundreds of years from now in the history books? If so, why?
