I have heard that the best way to become a better writer is to be completely and brutally honest with your audience. Is this a thing? Or did I just make that up ten seconds ago? Oh, how the lines blur. I’m going to plug along with it anyway, because I am not one to back down from a terrible idea. Here we go: full disclosure. I am going to tell you about one of my greatest fears for as long as I can, before I devolve into frightened high-pitched whine that will keep dogs awake long into the night.
No, not that fear. Good lord, not that one. No, the other one. The one that I don’t think I’ve discussed with too many people, for fear that they are sympathizers. You see, dear reader… I am absolutely terrified of people wearing animal costumes.
