This weeks Trifextra prompt is based on a quote from Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia. She wrote, “It’s like the smarter you are, the more things can scare you.” We are looking for a 33-word explanation of what scares you (or your character). We already know you’re intelligent, so, according to Paterson, you should have no shortage of potential subject matter.
I hope you enjoy! And as usual, please make sure you stop by and read what others have written and of course you’re welcome to join in the writing fun.
This week’s Trifextra is Community judged, so make sure to take a moment to vote, too.

Week after week I ask, “Why?”
She shrugs and says, “I’m just terrified of pens.”
