What do you fear? The break of October and November is traditionally a time of Halloween and spooky tales, and so our November theme shall be Fear.
In a child's room under the bed, with a mysterious sound in an empty house, with a cold touch in the darkness, with the look at the number of enemies before the battle - fear can lurk in many places and have many forms.
It can take the form of a phobia - an extreme or irrational fear of something. It can be just a little nervousness, anxiety, but it can grow to panic. Some give in to the fear and let it control their actions. Some resist it, like Aragorn on the Paths of the Dead.
The fear of something can be great, but there is another fear that is often deeper - fear for someone or something. Only someone who has nothing to lose can be truly fearless. Have no fear of entering this challenge with your story or picture though!
The deadline for this challenge is November 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!

The contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicly until the results of the challenge are announced.
