Great Hites Season 2 Prompt 2

This weeks prompt came from an idea I had while listening to a backlog of one of my favorite science podcasts, Science At NASA:

DOWNLOAD Season2 Prompt 2

This is a more complicated prompt, but I think you will like it.

Take the statement, "What a wonderful time to be alive," then pick a period in history, and have your character / tell / or demonstrate why that period in time was a wonderful time to be alive.

See I told you it was a little complicated. So to aid you in this here is a short example.

Take Mick Bordett's character, the stone aged toy maker and how he came up with stick and log and twig. The people who consumed those toys probably were thinking to themselves, What a wonderful time to be alive, we have toys to play with and they change every year.

Yeah, that is a silly example, but I think you get the point. feel free to pick imaginary time periods, or the future if you would like. Have fun with this one. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

We are starting a whole bunch of new things this season, including prizes, so stay tuned to find out more.

All Stories for this prompt are due by Midnight Saturday December 12th. Email the text of the story and a recording if you would like me to include it in the podcast to greathites at Gmail dot com
