A Bad Reputation


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)

What if the worst thing you ever did was the only thing anyone knew about you?

  4. If it was the only thing ANYONE knew about me, then I would have no friends at all. Glad that no one knows it about me! Wait! It's really not that bad! LOL another good question

    1. I think that'd be true of most of us.

  5. I'm pretty sure there are at least 6 people who know the worst thing I ever did and that's the only thing they know about me. Luckily it happened 38 years ago. I've said too much.

    1. Interesting. Do you still talk to those 6?

  6. You always give me the best "what if" questions to get me thinking about future stories!

    1. Not sure that would be worth it, though.
