Happy Time Traveler Day? (Well, I guess it's a little belated, since it's now past midnight...) Anyway, according to my wonderful in-the-know friend, December 8th is Time Traveler Day. Which is freakin' awesome.
I love the idea of time travel. If I could have any superpower, I would choose that one, hands down. No flying, no invisibility, no telepathy, but time travel. I tend to have a write of stories based on time travel. At least three, and I won't be surprised if more crop up. Like a lot of writers, I write stories that I would want to live, and I would love to journey into the past.
The first place I would go? That's really difficult, but I'd probably choose Paris in the 1920s (basically I'd like to be Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris). The '20s seem like they were a lot of fun, not to mention I'd love to hang out with Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Eliot, and the like (especially Hemingway). I'd also like to see regency-era Brazil (obviously. My fascination with Brazil is pretty apparent in my previous posts), Jamaica in the latter half of the 17th century, and Boston/Philadelphia/Williamsburg during the American Revolution.
Back to writing: my favorite book that involves time travel is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I love that book for a lot of reasons (namely, Sirius Black, Lupin, and an abundance of Snape), but the part with the time turner is wonderful.
Your turn: Do you have a favorite book/movie that involves time travel? If you could visit any time period, which would you choose and why?
