    For more information on Mibba’s Contest Revival and judging, please go here.


    Your Mission:
    Your task is simple. I'll provide a list of the top 10 most common phobias. You can either pick from one of the fears listed below or come up with one yourself that I haven't included. Write a story about a character facing the particular phobia that you've chosen.

    -Story must be published by June 30th

    Brownie Points
    -Make it scary
    -Have very few grammatical errors (though points won't be counted off if it's not 100%)
    -Have an original layout (no points will be counted off, again, for not having one)
    -Show character development
    -Put lots of detail into it (I'm a sucker for detail)
