Prompt: Be afraid. Be very afraid. What is your main character’s worst fear? Is it something universal, like the death of a loved one? Or a rare phobia, like turophobia (fear of cheese). Whatever it is, make that fear—or something close to it—show up in a scene. Make her feel like it’s breathing down her neck, waiting for her around every corner, giving her no way out but to face it head on. Be as subtle or over-the-top as you’d like (giant cheese-wielding cheese monster, anyone?)!
