August Writing Challenges: Day 16 - That Was Then

August. The summer is nearly over. Kids are going back to school. You now have some time on your hands.  Okay, you still have a list of chores a mile long, but let's put writing at the top of the priority list, okay?

I am going to challenge you with a writing prompt every day this month. Are you up for it? I hope so.

The writing challenges will be about a variety of topics and hopefully cause you to dig into your writing toolbox to complete with emotional skill.

Watch out, I just might throw in a fun one, well, just for fun!

For the sixteenth challenge we're going to travel back in time and have some fun with a history writing challenge.

Here is your challenge:
What is the period of history that you identify with most? The flappers of the American 1920's? The royal family during the War of the Roses? Choose one of these or your own particular period of time and write about a day you lived during that time.

TIP: History is defined as a time that that takes place in past times (usually more than fifty years ago.)

If you want to expand this challenge, you can also do research on the time in history you've chosen and delve deep into the what/who/when/how/why of the events at that time and how they affected your character.

I hope you enjoy this challenge.
