Writer's Block: Blast to the past

If you could travel back in time, what would you tell your 10-year-old self?


"Put down that chainsaw, and listen to me!"

That would at least get my attention, as I never carried a chainsaw as a 10-year-old.

Unfortunately, beyond that, I don't think 10-year-old me would get much out of it. Too broken and clueless. I'd have to come back when I was 14 or so to even start making headway.

"It's time for you to join in the fight." .. Maybe you did go back in time, but it took 10 year old you a few more years. ;)

I think the key problem with this question is whether I could travel forward in time.

Also I've thought entirely too much about this and realised having access to time travel and the ability to avert past disasters is a hell of a power/responsibility combo.

But in the spirit of the question, I guess I'd probably tell myself things will get better (TM) and apologise on behalf of adults on account of the fact we all seem to forget what it's like to be a child.

When I was young, i would sometimes wonder if I had already bumped into my future self. Following the rules of time-travel non-interference, I might have already passed my future self in a hallway, on the street... anywhere!

As I got older, I realized that if I ever had the chance to go back in time, I certainly wouldn't waste it by watching my younger-self muddle through childhood.

But if I had to tell my 10yr old self something, it would probably be "Invest in gold. NOW!"
