Do your characters truly control their fates? Here are some story ideas, in case you need some:
• In this memoir-like story, an octogenarian imagines how life could have been if a series of worldwide changes had gone differently.
• This first contact story begins with the realization that in its cultural exchange with Earth, Aldebaran B has sent its malcontents as a form of exile.
• This is a suspense story about a medical treatment that can rehabilitate stroke victims or create false memories, and a patient who had the therapy isn't sure why.
