The Well of Memories

This challenge has ended!

As writers, imagination is our god, our heaven, our hell, our life and death. Without it, we are little more than glorified record-keepers.

But what if imagination isn’t what we think it is?

What if “imagining” is really the ability of the mind to dive within a vast well of infinite memories from every corner of reality, and what you thought you, as a writer, invented, is actually a living memory of someone real, from any corner of space and time?

How would the world react to that? What would change about you as a writer if you discovered this? Would you want to know that truth?

Show us what treasures you can dig up in the Well of Memories.

    Wow, this is a really intriguing premise. I don’t know if I can do justice to it in a 1024-character story…

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
