Horrific situations in real-life are certainly anything but enjoyable. However, an augmented version of a terrifying situation -- a horror movie, a haunted house, a skydive -- can be rather delightful.
But while some people enjoy a good scare, many don't and will go out of their way to avoid goosebumps. I can only imagine those who do not enjoy scaring themselves have a difficult time fathoming why on Earth anyone else would want to do such a thing. To tackle the subject, I covered the cons of loving a good scare in a previous blog post. This time, I'll focus on some of the pros. I'm not sure this will solve anything, but maybe it's worth taking a look at.
Fear, focus, and the future. C.M. Humphries talks about writing, horror, and whatever.
