worries001worries003worries002worries004 worries005Hello! It is school holidays and I am sneaking some quick comics in while my children have their designated screen time. I’m quite fascinated by how Violet has invented her own superstition, or perhaps ritual around managing her fears.I too was paranoid about random dreadful things happening to me when I was a child – that my eyes might explode, that my legs would snap off, that the monsters would rise up and eat me. These days my fears are too terrifying to articulate – I did consider drawing some of my own, but I was too superstitious to do so. I’ve heard it said that you should write what you most fear and that’s where your most powerful writing will come from. But I’m too scared to do that too.

    I don’t wish that you stop drawing comics.

    Being a kid is tough. You capture their innocence and their fears well with this. Loved it.

    I read somewhere that Stephen King was fearful of many things, so his grandmother told him to write down the things that scared him. I guess he kept going until his lists grew into novels. (I don’t know how true that story is.)

    Violet is very wise, isn’t she.
