Bloganuary day 17! Today’s prompt is:
What is a superpower you’d love to have?
Oh superpowers, how I love thee, let me count the ways!
This one feels like a bit of a cheat because I’ve already written several articles about potential superpowers and what my thoughts are about them.
But that was a few years ago and after re-reading them I’ve come to realize that I’m just as indecisive now as I was back then!
Though I do still hold the opinion that unrestricted mind reading is a superpower I would not want.
However, as for a superpower I’d like to have, I’d have to say telepathy. Which is different to straight up mind reading. But man can I ever think of a number of benefits for this ability. Of course teleportation is right up there with it. Along with shapeshifting, air control and immortality (but who’s counting).
And while this post hasn’t exactly tied directly to writing, I can say that the consideration of superpowers is very much tied to my writing. Since I write fantasy, I’ve worked in a variety of magic and superpowers with my world and characters. It’s a topic I’ve done a boat load of research on.
If you’re curious about the musing I did on some superpower abilities, you’ll find them here: https://tanyajones.ca/blog/ (after all the Bloganuary posts). And no, my article on procrastination isn’t a superpower haha.
Is there a superpower you’d love to have? Or if you’re like me, several that you’d love to have?
