Time for another set of “What If?” Writing Prompts. Speaking of time, this week’s batch is centered around a fascinating theme yet to be featured in this segment: history! How might true stories have played out differently if certain historical details were changed? Have fun exploring the possibilities!
What if… most of the greatest leaders in history had been women?
What if… the Roman Empire had never fallen?
What if… the Church had not been the most powerful entity in the Middle Ages?
What if… the slave trade had never made it to the United States?
What if… the Axis powers had won World War II?
Good luck writing your own twists on history!
If you have any “What If?” writing prompt suggestions (for any theme), please feel free to share them in the comments below. Ideas I like may be featured in future “What If?” posts, with full credit and a link to your blog (if you have one)! Also, if you’ve written a piece based on an idea you’ve found here, be sure to link back to the respective “What If?” post. I would love to see what you’ve done with the prompt! Thank you!
