Fear

Fear
Sweaty feet
Can’t breathe
No air
Embarrassment
Pounding heart
Irrational
Unexplainable

This short piece of creative writing stems from a session at the recent LIANZA Waikato/BOP Weekend School 2014, held in Gisborne. The session was taken by the lovely Emma Darragh @darragh_emma (Community Librarian, Tairua Library) who runs creative writing sessions at a local Residential Care Facility. She challenged us all to the ‘one-minute’ creative writing challenge. The third word she gave us was “fear”.  I think in this case I was thinking about public speaking and fear of public embarrassment – maybe being found out as a phony. The above result is what I scribbled in my notebook. See – all it takes in one minute; it helps just to get something down and not over-think the writing process!
