What if?

Have you ever pondered 'what if'?  A couple I thought of are:
What if Remus, and not his brother Romulus, had founded Rome. Would we be calling it Reme today?
What if it was James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, who wanted meat between bread while he played cards and Lord Sandwich had led the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava. 

Would be eating cardigans and wearing sandwiches? 

Many creative people have pondered ‘what if’. Here are just a few well known examples:

What if four siblings stepped through a wardrobe and entered another world?The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe, C. S. Lewis

What if a man fell in love with a woman who hates him?Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

What if a boy discovered he was a wizard and had to go to school to learn magic?Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, J.K. Rowling

What if a boy was raised by wild animals?The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling

If you are a writer, asking ‘what if’ may spark your best work yet.
