Writing Prompt: Make the impossible happen

Suffering from writer’s block or need to add some spunk to your writing? The problem may be that you need to change up your routine.

To that end, try this tip: “Impossible” is merely a state of mind. The only reason something is “impossible” is because we lack the knowledge or experience of how to do it (Remember that a little more than a century ago, human flight was deemed “impossible.”). As a writer, you are tasked with explaining why something is possible (How does warp drive work? How were some Jews smuggled out of wartime Nazi Germany?). List five things that are widely considered “impossible” then write about how they could occur.
