It’s time for another batch of “What If?” Writing Prompts! Since I enjoyed writing the last one so much, this week’s post features another set in the history theme. See what twists you can write into true stories of the past! Good luck!

What If - Parchment and QuillWhat if… every civilization in the world had shared the same religion throughout all of history?

What if… European nations hadn’t begun exploring the world in the 15th century?

What if… the British had won the American Revolutionary War?

What if… some of the greatest machines of the Industrial Age had never been invented?

What if… the Cold War had continued to the present day?

Have fun putting your own spin on historical tales!

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!
