What would your characters change if they could alter history? It’s an interesting question (inspired by the card game Chrononauts rather than Doctor Who, as people who know me might have suspected). Most people have events in their lives that they wish they could go back and change, decisions and choices that they would have made differently if they had the chance. Those pivotal moments often define a character and influence their actions going forward, so they’re important to identify. This week, let one of your characters revisit the past in memory and either relive one of those key moments or envision a different ending.
