    Well, I was returning home from a long day of work the other day (I was taking care of the dogs I walk during the day), and it was fairly dark out. I’m usually not scared in these instances, but something felt eerie this evening. It seemed to …

    Okay, so my days are definitely not 60 seconds, and this assignment definitely took much longer than 60 seconds, but, hey, the title worked, so I went with it.

    Nighttime fear

    by

    I’ve definitely been intimidated by these video assignments, but this one allowed me to incorporate one of my favorite things: poetry. I also knew after watching the example version that this would be a great opportunity to use my character as part of the story.
