Have to write about greatest fear…?

QUESTION
Have to write about greatest fear…?
Hi πŸ™‚
For my English class, I have to write an essay about my greatest fear…
The instructions specifically say:
“Describe your fear. You might consider explaining the reason behind the fear or how you try to avoid it. Enable your reader to understand your fear.”
My problem is that I’m not entirely sure how to describe my fear, which is honestly the idea of going to Hell. Many students have fears like needles or spiders, and they will just write about how they feel when they see one…but I’ve never experienced going to Hell…
Any ideas on how I can write 2 pages on a fear that I’ve never experienced?
Thanks πŸ™‚

ANSWER
Sounds like a very interesting paper. Depending on what English class and how many sources you need you can take a biblical approach and that is how religion describes hell, or you could even base it off a movie such as Dante’s Inferno, or Constantine. Hell is something that each and every person has a different opinion on. It may make it more interesting to set the field yourself, such as what is hell to you, fire, ice, people screaming, or no noise at all? More or less your introduction could even be exactly what you said “Many students have fears like needles or spiders, and they will just write about how they feel when they see one…but I’ve never experienced going to Hell”. Think of it as a story and your a character.
