So why do I love being Wicked After Dark?
Well, I’ve actually got a confession to make and some of you who have been doing the KISSED BY THE VAMPIRE blog hop may know what it is: I’m afraid of the dark.
Yep, you read that right. Total chicken, especially in creepy places like cemeteries or on deserted streets. It doesn’t take much to have me jumping or running away.
Why? you wonder. As a kid, my mom and sis would watch all these horror movies on rainy weekends. Not wanting to be excluded, I would join in, but I could not handle the scare and gore the way they could. Inevitably I’d go up to bed that night and pull the covers up over my head in the hopes of staying safe until morning.
What better way to deal with that fear than to write about it? In my paranormal worlds, I have control of those creatures of the night. I can have them do what I want and whether good guys or bad, I can get into their heads to understand them better.
It’s like naming your fear so you can deal with it. Maybe even banish it. It’s much harder to fear something that is concrete and can be identified.
Writing paranormals is like naming that fear. The demons and other creatures have become real on the pages, but I am no longer afraid of them when they are there.
Now if I could only deal with my fear of heights. Maybe I should call it Fred. What do you think?
