’14-7-1987′ – A 33 Word Time Travel Story

Been away in foreign lands for a couple of weeks and poor internet connections have led me to neglecting my blog! This short, 33 word story, is in response to this weekend’s challenge from Trifextra to write a time travel story.

Doctor, I need to borrow the Tardis. I have to make an important journey, back to London, July 14th 1987. According to mum that’s when I was conceived. I need a different father.

    1. Thanks for your comments Sarah. That’s the problem with very short stories they always leave you wanting to know a bit more. As for time travel – if I could do it I’m nor sure if I’d want to go back in time or forward into the future?

  1. I don’t know what to write here…it strikes me as both funny and sad…mostly sad. I can relate to the thought though. My biological father was a crappy one, but a better one came into my life when I was three – he’s my dad…my only dad.

  2. …and if it were that easy, with a press of a button or spin of the Tardis, everyone would try it …once. 😉

    I liked the way you wrote it, so matter-of-factly, it made for an exciting 33 words.

  3. Hi welcome back. I missed you these few days. It is strange is it not, that if you or I were to suddenly stop blogging, the other would not ever know what was going on at the other end of the world… you would probably weave a spectacular reason in your imagination like one of your mystery stories while I would think something mundane and ordinary for your absence.LOL.

    Love your stories. Keep going…

  4. I don’t know… better the devil you know than the devil you don’t know??? But I love the idea, and the Tardis. Do they get to do it in the Tardis?
