Let’s Talk About IT…

    OMG I was a Stephen King junkie in high school and early adult years. The Shining, The Stand, Pet Semetery, Tommyknockers, and Desperation scared me so bad at the beginning that I had to set the book aside for a month and then try again! LOL

    I was an only child and grew up in the sticks of San Diego county. I actually used to ride my pony to the local store. They had a hitching post! I can remember the ultimate freedom riding her down there with change in my pocket. I thought I was so grown up! 🙂

    But I think being lonely as a kid is probably why I’m a writer today. I made up stories ALL the time and they were usually scary, which is funny because I was always scaring myself.

    You’re right about kids being brave during the day though. I think as adults, we lose that curiosity because we’re not ready to be that “honest” with ourselves or others. Part of me doesn’t want to know what that weird noise is coming from my neighbor’s back yard late at night.

    But the 8 year old in me would never have let that slide. We’d have to investigate.

    I haven’t seen IT yet, but I’m going to. I’m super excited about it. So maybe a little bit of me still enjoys the rush of adrenaline at being scared…. 🙂

    Great blog Jennifer!
