Hey Fans, Friends, and Fellows,
I occasionally have episodes of sleep paralysis. It is scary ass hell. When it passes, I can’t get myself to go right back to sleep. In that initial time of being back in control my brain is still in panic mode and so every horror movie scenario suddenly seems possible. Is there ever a time when even the most irrational things seem possible or even likely for your characters? Take some time to figure out what scares your character or what makes them paranoid. Do they have any control over it? How can you use that for your story?
