Y is for a Year of Youth

April 29, 2014

For the A to Z challenge┬áthis year, I’m sharing science fiction and fantasy story ideas…

This would have to be fantasy magic, I think. Somebody gets a year to leave old age behind and become young (and beautiful) again, but once the year is up, that’s it, they won’t get a chance again. Who wants this and why? How do they pick which year?

Maybe it isn’t for one particular person, but a land where everybody gets a year of youth, assuming that they live long enough to grow out of their natural youth. How would that change people’s opinions about aging? Would they still think that youth was wasted on the young?

If you’re interested enough to pick this up and write your own version, feel free; ideas are cheap. And let me know! I’ll be keeping the notions vague enough that lots of different stories might be written from them.

Thanks for visiting!
