Previous lifetimes imaginary travel – part two!

Welcome back in my fictional soul rollercoaster through the centuries.

Now, before I’ll go on, I want to paste and copy the explanation and the reason behind these posts. In this way, whomever new reader will land on these pages, he or she will understand this blog style!

I don’t want to pretend I know something about previous lifetimes and, if any of you happens to be an expert or a real believer, please bear in mind I’m not mocking anybody in writing things about past.

The only aim of these posts is a literary and fantasy exercise.

My aspiring writer brain got stimulated, excited and felt challenged so this is the only meaning behind the following mess!

Before I go on, I want to give you another explanation. I’m not even an history expert, so what I did was to open the Wikipedia and look for the history of the world time line.

Said that, where have we left?

Oh yes, with the execution of one of my personal historic love: William Wallace!

Let’s go on then:

1553 – Mary Tudor becomes first queen regnant of England under Papal authority. I was her assassin. Woman.

1590 –  Siege of Odawara Go-Hojo clan surrender to Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the Japan is unified. I was a kunoichi at the direct service of Toytomi Hideyoshi. Woman.

March 1941 – Expansion of Auschwitz prison camp to be run by commander Rudolf Höss. I was one of the official at his service.

1979 – Current life!

And we finished!

I have to admit that this game was very fun and stimulating!

I had a couple of ideas, I’ll keep for this blog only, at least for the moment!

I have my plate full at the minute with the two WIPs I’m working on, plus the fairy tales.

In fact, what I was thinking about was to write a brief piece for each life. I still don’t know whether it will be about the death moment or something else. It might be a flash fiction or a longer piece, we’ll see.

I’m telling you already, I won’t do much research, I’ll try to defeat the obsessive-compulsive researcher in me.

I’ll do just for the fun!

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I started to think about the theme of previous lifetimes.

Now, I don’t want to pretend I know something about it and, if any of you happens to be an expert or a real believer, please bear in mind I’m not mocking anybody in writing things about past and possible a few others.

The only aim of these posts is a literary and fantasy exercise.

My aspiring writer brain got stimulated, excited and felt challenged so this is the only meaning behind the following mess!

Before I go on I want to give you another explanation. I’m not even an history expert, so what I did was to open the Wikipedia and look for the history of the world time line.
