HORROR MOVIE by Sylvia Toy Day in Night © 2018

A #horror movie is slowly forming in my mind. #storydevelopment I can easily see what the world of the #story looks like - the layers of reality that are always happening at once even though we’re not conscious of them, don’t know about all of them, have forgotten some of them, or just don’t want to think about some of them. I sometimes have moments of sudden extreme #anxiety when I feel like I should be worried about something but I can’t remember what it is. “There is nothing to fear but #fear itself.” I don’t know who this #character is yet but I think she is not like me: she does not live on the edge of her seat and she sleeps a lot. I think she probably has just been doing her #existential bit but now her life is #haunted. #silentmovie
