Fiction Writing Information

Acarophobia and Other Phobias star
In this article, Im going to tell you about some of the unusual phobias that begin with the letter A, and suggest a writing exercise for each one. Have fun with them!

Agyrophobia and Other Fears star
A phobia is an irrational fear of a person, a place, an object, or an activity. Each person with a phobia has a distinct reason for the fear. Phobias are wonderful tools to be used by the writer; they add to the personality of a character and set him apart from the rest.

Alliumphobia and Other Phobias star
Pick one of the following phobias alliumphobia, anthrophobia, illyngophobia, oneirophobia and see if you can create a character with that specific fear.

Anablephobia and Other Fears star
Phobias are a like a mine full of treasure for writers. These fears add both depth and uniqueness to our characters. Use the following phobias and come up with at least a story or story line for each one of them.

Animal Phobias star
I am surrounded by animals. They make my life so enjoyable that I cannot imagine living without them. There are people, though, who live their life as far away as they can from certain animals. For some reason, animal phobias tend to be more common in females than in males.

Ballistophobia and Other Phobias star
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.

Bogyphobia and Other Fears star
For each of the following phobias, develop a story line and write a story. Or you may use the story line that I suggest, then write a story. The important thing is to have fun as you develop your writing skills.

Create Your Own Phobias: Tripoerdogaphobia star
Every phobia has its starting point. I dont believe that anyone is born with a phobia. There has to be something that happens to cause it to develop. I dont exactly have what I would call a phobia, but I do have a fear. Is my fear unreasonable or without cause?

Dystychiphobia and Other Phobias star
Never make fun of anyone with a phobia, but you can bless (or curse) your characters with any number of this fears. Pick one or more of the following phobias and create one or more characters afflicted with this fear or fears.

Entomophobia star
I do not like bugs, but I am not phobic about them. At least Im not now. Entomophobia,the fear of insects, or acarophobia, the fear of those little bugs that make you itch, can be used in your writing to give others chills.

Farm Animal Phobias star
All of the following phobias have to do with farm animals, or animals that people have as pets. Remember, each time a person with a phobia is confronted by what he or she fears, there are physical reactions.

Halloween Related Phobias star
Halloween immediately brings to mind candy and trick-or-treaters. One also thinks of bats and witches flying through the night sky, while owls are hooting from the trees. For many children, this is an enjoyable holiday. For those with certain phobias, it may be quite a frightening time.

Irrational Fears star
One of the ways to make your character more interesting is to give him or her an irrational fear, otherwise know as a phobia.

Medical Phobias star
Medical phobias make up some of the most common fears, even in those you think wouldn't be afraid of anything.

More Halloween Related Phobias star
Phobias are everywhere. No matter what you fear, I'm sure there is a phobia that describes your fear perfectly. In this article are some phobias that I believe should be associated with Halloween.

Nebulaphobia, the Fear of Fog star
Have you ever been caught out in fog so thick you could not see your hand in front of your face? Or maybe you were driving and the fog was so thick you could barely see where you were going. There are some people who would be terrified by either situation.

Nephophobia and Other Phobias star
In no way should anyone who has a phobia be made fun of or belittled, but writers can use phobias to deepen their characters, to make them seem more real, and to add secondary plots to the story. What caused your character to develop this phobia? Is he trying to overcome it?

Pediophobia, the Fear of Dolls star
Pediophobia is the fear of dolls. The type of dolls that people with this phobia fear can vary greatly. Some have a fear of only antique dolls, old collectible dolls, or dolls with glass eyes. Some have a fear of Kewpie dolls. A lot seem to fear clown dolls.

Phalangophobia and Other Phobias star
A phobia is an irrational fear. You should never make fun of a person afflicted with a phobia, but you could use phobias to create an unforgettable character, one whose fear puts him or her in amusing situations.

Phobias that Begin with W, X, and Z star
Did you know that according to the Anxiety Disorders Association, that one in 11 people at some time in their lives will suffer from some kind of phobia? Me? I am afraid to go on a cruise. The chances of sinking or being attacked by terrorists while on a cruise terrify me.

Phobias That Could Thwart Writers star
Halloween is the time when we think about scary things. What is out there that would scare a writer? If the thought of having one of the following phobias is bad, what if having one of them was more than a thought? What if you actually did have one of them? Would you still be able to write?

Phobias That Could Thwart Writers star
Halloween is the time when we think about scary things. What is out there that would scare a writer? If the thought of having one of the following phobias is bad, what if having one of them was more than a thought? What if you actually did have one of them? Would you still be able to write?

Strange Phobias star
Unless you are afflicted with one of the following phobias, you will probably find them kind of humorous. It is hard for me to believe that some people really have fears about things that are so much a part of our everyday life. They do make characters interesting, though.

Unusual Phobias star
Some phobias are easier to deal with than others. Arachibutyrophobia, for example, would be an easy one for just about anybody to deal with. Others, like Geliophobia would be a bit more difficult.

Weather Phobias star
Lately, the news has been filled with accounts of capricious acts of weather. Powerful weather phenomena are fascinating to watch, yet terrifying. The fierceness of tornadoes and hurricanes leave one speechless and amazed.

Weird Phobias star
There are so many phobias. Each and every one of them is fascinating. I think there is a phobia for just about everything in existence. A lot of phobias are considered common, others are considered to be weird or strange. In this article, I talk about some of the ones considered weird.
