plinky

Name something that makes you wish you were a kid again.

Why does it remind you of the good old days?

Not knowing about all of the darker sides of life. Then again, I learned about some of these darknesses before the age of about seven.

Having an eloquent imagination that created stories non-stop. I can still write but I am not as good at imagining and living within stories.

I want to be five, again, and not have a care in the world.

Describe a time you were scared.

Was the danger real or imagined? Explain how you dealt with it.

Well, as you may remember if you read my werewolf story (friends locked) I had a pretty scary childhood and young adulthood. I have no idea how I coped, to be honest, other than to cope badly, develop codependency and other unhelpful behaviours (which I have mostly learned to leave behind) and to just get by by the skin of my teeth.

It *has* made me stronger, but part of me wishes that I had not had that reason to become stronger…
