RTW – The Feel Good Decade

Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing or reading related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

This Week’s Topic: If you could travel back to any historical era for research purposes, which would you choose?

This one’s easy for me! I’ve been researching the 1970s for the last few weeks for my WIP, Where Poppies Bloom, which features a ghost who’s been dead since 1977. Not sure the ’70s qualify as a “historical era” (I think historical is technically anything before the 1900s, right?) but I’m chosing The Feel Good Decade anyway, because it’s just so groovy. 🙂  The Vietnam War was over and the draft was done . Civil Rights was the law. Protesting was coming to an end. People just wanted to be happy! Why else would they have worn bell bottom pants and disco-ed till they dropped?

Just check out this awesomeness!

Thanks for another fun topic, YA Highway! Looking forward to next week!

  1. Interesting choice! Not many (not any?) picked the 70s. I like your reasoning!

  2. With as much as I adore That 70’s Show and Dazed and Confused, this could have been one of my answers too.

  3. This is no exaggeration – as a child I would have given away every last one of my toys to go back to the seventies. Peace, man. For real. 🙂
