Let's get seasonal (WRITING CHALLENGE!)

:iconjzlobo:
JZLobo Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
All right my lovely fanfictioning minions, it's time I gave you something to do. Write me a short story anywhere from two hundred to two thousand words. The key word here is fear - show me how a character copes with being afraid. It doesn't matter what they're afraid of, it doesn't matter if they successfully overcome it or not, just show me how they handle it.

"Original" literature is welcome too, since I don't want to leave anyone out, but this challenge is primarily for fan fic. When you're done, post the thumbnail in this thread!

ah, well, this isn't exactly about 'coping' with fear, but it gets pretty close with the fact that while i wrote it i was making it so that Captain America was truly afraid of doing anything. since it's older and wasn't intended for this theme, i'll just share with you through this reply. lol i'll write my own piece for this challenge later.

As original characters are allowed, too, I might try. Could help me getting back into writing.

200 words does not sound too much. Should I end up with more than 2000, well, no harm done. If only I could decide which scenario to choose ... can you give me a random number either between 3 and 59 or between 1252 and 1308?

200 is, like, half a page. It's less than microfiction. How can you even have a plot in 200 words?

OK. I'll give it a shot! For future reference, how do I link a thumbnail? I've actually never done that before.

Once upon a time Patrick Bateman went out to kill some bitches. One bitch tried to get away, but he chased her down with a chainsaw. I'm sure there was some fear in there somewhere. But it's gone now. So is she.

Well, that's right, but also wrong. He did indeed say 'write me', so it implies that he wants something written for this challenge and not something already written, but he also said to post the thumbs to what you write here, so in a way he is asking you to show him, too.

I think.

Damn chest infection is kerfuddling my brain.
