Prompt #17 for 2010: Time Travel

Welcome to Writer’s Island.

New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday. Consider the prompt in depth, then let inspiration carry you. When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.

β€’β€’> The seventeenth prompt for 2010 is: TIME TRAVEL… what is it from the past that you might want to witness or relive, perhaps have the ability to influence or change — whether it be historical or something very personal? Perhaps its to re-experience a moment of great joy or pride, or to take back or redo something you regret. Then again, is it on to the future you’d like to go, for whatever reason?

Please strap yourself into that “Wellsian” machine, and tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction, etc.) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding chronological shifting — include any visual image you might want to incorporate. So get your HG on, and let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write…

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! πŸ˜‰

  2. I overslept… When I woke up, it was The Twenty Sixth Century…!
    Here’s mine: TIME TRAVEL

  3. Here’s my second attempt, rubbish, nearly as bad as the junked first – and now I must be off to cook dinner for guests! I will do a big read tomorrow:-…-travel-prompt/

  4. Had a couple weeks away as other writing wouldn’t let me go but I am happy to be back.

    Here is my little piece. Warning: it’s a bit fluffy.

    Mine is an old poem re-worked; I wasn’t satisfied with it until now, so thanks for the prompt!

  9. I am on a Fringe obsession right now!


    Be back later to check out others’ work >:)

  10. I’ve had a few goes at my original poem to this prompt, which you will find here:

  11. …journey of wisdom through the ages: Clarion Stones

  12. I’ve put up this week’s episode of “Sleeping under the stairs” which took me time traveling to 1942 when I wrote it in 2008.
    Sleeping Under The Stairs pt.III

      Let me see if I can find a way to post the procedure Viv, because if I try to show the code string on line, it will “disappear” and just become the “click word” — like it does when I post it… it’s a quandary I will have to noodle out… πŸ˜‰

  14. A bit late but you said “Take your time and reply when you’re ready” πŸ˜‰

    • writersisland

      You are correct FM, post at your convenience — the advantage to earlier is more Islanders may read your work… πŸ˜‰
