Today's writing challenge is a fun one for me! I think "what if" all the time, but the main one I think about is what if I was born in a different time period. I've only written a couple of historical novels, but it really helped to imagine myself in that time.
I wonder if I'd been born in the 1800s if I'd have been in a family like Laura Ingalls Wilder, having no wealth but a lot of love. Or would I have been born into a wealthy family? And if I'd been born in a poor family, how differently would I have turned out back in the 19th century?
I think about how differently my life would be if I had been a teenager in the 1950s. My friend had a 1950 themed party for her husband's 60th birthday as he was born in 1950. I got to wear a poodle skirt and black and white shoes with a headband. We had a jukebox and danced to all the oldies, and it was a blast, but I know times weren't all rock and roll back then. Every era has its ups and downs, but I sure do wish I could take a spin in that time-traveling ship used in Legends of Tomorrow. I could spend the rest of my lifetime exploring the past!
