There are so many prompts bouncing around Medium at any given moment it’s no wonder writers and prompts sometimes get missed. But prompts are a good thing. We all get stuck and need a kick in the <blank> page.

I would have missed this one but for Medium sticking Barb Dalton’s 10-things response in my ‘Recommended’ list.

Barb tagged a few bloke writers for this prompt because she doesn’t think we men share enough. Reasonable assumption. But writers will write.

So here’s my two cents, tagged or not.

One of the many powers of this here writing community is the relaxed freedom to share and write about anything. Which makes coming up with 10 new, unknown things more difficult than it first reads.

Perhaps I’ve shared too much already.

But I digress.

Here are 10 more things you probably didn’t need to know:

I. Fear of heights

Want to see me freeze up in fear? Stop the creaking, rattling Ferris wheel of the travelling carnival when I’m in the car, high up top, overlooking the parking lot and cornfield.

There’s a stereotype that says tall people are more afraid of heights than regular folk. There’s a kernel of truth in every stereotype.
