What If You could Change History

What if Tuesday

“What if” you could change one thing in history. What would you change?

Would you call back the Titanic from that fateful voyage or erase the first test atom bomb from exploding? Or would it be something simple and more connected to your life, like changing the circumstances of the first day you met your lover who broke your heart into a million pieces?

If you can, please share your story.

Be Inspired….

Again, thank you for those who participated in the contest. Here are a few more entries…

They are not in any special order.

They are just interesting and I felt worthy of sharing.

She loved him and he loved her, but it wasn’t that simple

One Line Entry:  There was their respective spouses to consider, plus the added complication of their wheelchairs.

By Tony Milligan

 

One Line Entry: Everyone felt as though robots were glorified metal maids, but Ric-7 felt love and he was the first one to do so.

By A. M. Hounchell

 

One Line Entry: Her strict, racist father would rather see her dead than married to a boy like him: poor, black, and with nothing to show for himself, but the love for a  beautiful girl and a dying dream of showing everyone that he could be more than what this cruel society had fated for him.

By Gwendolyn Bunnewith

 

One Line Entry: Because he failed to realize that her hobbies included getting surgery every year and making elderberry wine spiked with more than a little arsenic, and she didn’t know that his funds manager was secretly siphoning off interest payments and having a sordid affair with her terribly attractive twin sisters.

By: LindaAnn LoSchiavo

“Best Opening” Writing Contest Entries

ontherelentlesspursuitofperfection

I’ve hosted a Flash Fiction Contest and I hosted a Best Opening contest all in hopes of pushing writers to create the perfect opening chapter. My latest contest which has closed was a single sentence inspired by…

“She loved him and he loved her but it wasn’t that simple…”

I wanted to know your next line to make me want to read more. To make me want to buy that book or turn to the next page.

Isn’t that what we seek as writers, those special words set in the right manner to excite our readers to continue on the journey? That’s my reason for my contests to exercise your writing skills and creativity. I want to inspire you to move beyond your normal.

On March 14, 2017 I’ll announce the winner, but until then I thought I would share a few of the entries.

One Line Entry: She kept giving him one last chance, and he kept asking for one last chance, until one day she finally realized and said to him,”How many times for the same mistake again?”

By Nikita Agarwal

One Line Entry: It was a lovers’ dark.

By Adam Sifre

Welcome to Perfection, and please enjoy the Journey

Stay Inspired

It’s Fat Tuesday so it must mean it’s Mardi Gras

How could I forget…..

Coustums, drinks with crazy names, celebrations lasting for days in a town with a rich history of witches, warlocks and vampires. As a paranormal romance writer, I must re-group and send inspiration to my fellow writers and readers. 

Please have a toast tonight to New Orleans. 🥂

What if a demon told you this secret?

102-700x438.jpg

What if Tuesday is all about the what ifs. Each week I post a hypothetical question that you can ponder and answer. This week’s question is based on the following quote:

What, if some some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and an innumerable times more’… Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you have answered him:’You are god and never have I heard anything more divine.'”

By Friedrich Nietzsche

So, what if a demon told you that you would live the same life over and over again?

Would you “gnash your teeth” or rejoice?

Why?

If you change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

What if Tuesday is all about the what ifs. Each week I post a hypothetical question that you can have fun with and answer. This week’s question is:

What if you could change one thing about yourself? What would it be?

Would it be a physical, mental, or spiritual change? Why would you change this about yourself?
