As a reader and a writer it's good and healthy to acknowledge you're deepest fears.
Why? Because when you read about them you'll see how a character or characters have to deal with them and overcome them.
For instance, you're deepest fear may be losing a loved one in an airplane crash. The author Taylor Jenkins Reid had this theme in her book "One True Loves".
Seeing and feeling the character's loss and experiencing it through their eyes is an emotional roller coaster that you're pulled into and will learn from.
Not only will it show you how to tap into your own worst fears and write about them with more clarity (because we often write what we know best), it will show you how to overcome your greatest fears or deal with it if it ever (knock on wood) happened.
Here are my deepest fears:
1. Losing my husband
2. Losing a loved one in a car accident
2. Embarrassing myself to the point I'm only remembered for the embarrassing incident
3. Being all alone
4. Being morbidly obese
6. Dying a painful death
What are your deepest fears? What books would you recommend that changed your perspective on your deepest fear?
