Literary – January 21

“We like to invent ‘what if’ scenarios — what if x had never happened, what if y had happened instead? — because we like to believe that individual decisions make a difference: that, if not for x, or if only there had been y, history might have plunged forever down a completely different path.”

Louis Menand, born this date in 1952.

Writing prompt: Write your protagonist’s fondest “what if” scenario.
