RTW -- To Boldly Go...
Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic. We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.
This week’s topic:
This month's Bookmobile selection, STARGLASS
by Phoebe North, takes place on a generation starship. But the
characters wouldn't be there if their ancestors hadn't left Earth with
the hope of their descendants one day colonizing elsewhere.
Would you go on a generation starship, if given the opportunity? Why or why not?
At the time of writing this, I'm watching Star Trek: Into Darkness for the second time in three days. While I would prefer to be the person born on the ship so that I could have a chance of seeing new worlds, I would go on a generation starship if given the chance.
There's nothing like the chance to travel the stars, the chance to see things that no one has seen before and may never see again. Sometimes I love this world, but the idea of finding a new one and building civilization there--a world that would hopefully learn from the mistakes of this one...
Also, stars. Being able to travel among the stars. It wouldn't be easy and I'd have to give up a lot of things I love (horses, hiking, privacy), but if I had to, I would.
