Create March 2018 Challenge: Hindsight Is 20/20

Create 2018 March Challenge: Hindsight

Hindsight – a wonderful thing, or a useless tool?

From Dickens' Christmas Carol to Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, the idea of the chance of a 'do-over', a second chance, has always been a popular theme.

If wishes were fishes, we'd never starve.

This month's Create Challenge can't promise ghosts of Christmas past or telepathic aliens but we would like to know, with hindsight, if you could go back and change something, what would it be?

A poor career choice, hasty housing decisions, even an awful dress or a rather dubious haircut? What would you change?

Maybe going back to change a simple decision would prove catastrophic to your future self?

Perhaps that awful dress was vital to the future career of a famous designer?

What would the world be like if we could make decisions with the benefit of hindsight?

If wishes are fishes; cast your nets wide, folks!

Write an entry on a historical figure who tried to change an important choice, tell us a tale, send us some artwork.

Maybe you wouldn't change a single thing and have advice for living a regret-free life!

Just don't look back and think, 'I wish I had sent that in to Create!'
