Just for the Rush Blog Tour

Happy Wednesday! Today I am excited to be joined by Jane Lark for her Just for the Rush blog tour.

Facing Your Worst Fears

What if you were forced to face your worst fear?

Both Ivy and Jack face their worst fears in Just for the Rush and they handle it in different ways. One with fear ridden focus, after a lot of urging, and the other with a considerable amount of anger and determination. But Jack is addicted to the feel of adrenaline and fear is an adrenaline stirring thing.

My fears have become worse through the years. I have been scared of heights for as long as I can remember. That is my big brother’s fault. He used to do that trick when we were kids of pushing me and then catching me when we were walking along cliff paths or around ruined castle walls.

Another of my fears, enclosed spaces. That one came from going caving on a school trip when I was fourteen, and it took years to come on after that. But I don’t do narrow spaces, crushing crowds or small rooms at all well now. I remember the boy who was behind me in this cave, when we were sandwiched between miles of rock, with only a foot of space to wriggle through on our stomachs, telling me to, ‘keep going, it would be ok’. He was really sweet for a fourteen-year-old boy.

When my daughter was about eight we paid to go on a tour of the old Roman tunnels under Exeter. They are only about a foot and half wide. Uh-uh. I panicked after about five seconds and told the guide ‘my daughter’ was scared. I say with a wink. It got me out of there.

I have once climbed a cliff. But someone on the same climbing trip got stuck half way up. The instructors did not do all the wrong things that Jack does in Just for the Rush. But I am so bad with heights didn’t even like going near the edge at the top of the Empire State Building.

So as you can tell – In some ways I am not a very brave person, or certainly not when it comes to facing phobias. But I do understand that if you conquer things it feels exciting. But I have never had that person to push me on to face these phobias and it is far easier to not be brave and turn and run.

One of the things that I love about writing, though, is that in characters you can create the person you’d never be. A little of the coward in me slips into Ivy, but she has the strength to dare herself to do the things she’s scared of and take a chance that things will turn out ok. Of course there is Jack in the background persuading and supporting. But don’t worry, when he faces his worst fear, he turns to her to pay him back.

Maybe the next chance I get, I’ll try to beat one of my fears… Or maybe not… 😀

Best Wishes,

Jane x
