Time Rift


Wormholes, portals, time rifts, tear in time and other magical gateways make for interesting possibilities in the world of fiction. Today's prompt will make use of this concept.

Pumping Your Muse Prompt:
Develop a character within a short scene of two-three paragraphs. Then with the use of a portal of some kind transport them to another time. It can even be the same place, but doesn't need to be.

This prompt will most likely require a little research if you want to be authentic.

If you wonder where to start here are a few ideas to play with:

  • WWII soldiers carried to battle in the Civil War
  • Career woman of the 1990s transports to New York of the 1890s
  • A tired mother of three has the chance to visit her great-grandmother
  • A middle-aged business man without family and few friends travels to the future
