I just saw a writing prompt from The Writer and I thought it to be very interesting. I’m sure that one could think of several historical events that they could write about. This could turn in to several individual descriptions.
Imagine you could travel back in time to a moment in history: the invasion of Normandy, the flight of Amelia Earhart, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Write a description of the environment and capture the tension. Would your presence rewrite history?
