I was just thinking...do you think a story written perhaps from the perspective of an oak tree would be good? Basically it would be a short story starting at say early 19th century and ending in the 21st century. It could almost serve as a reflective and quite interesting piece of writing. The reason for the oak tree is because it has a lot of meaning to past groups in history eg: in celtic mythology it serves as a portal between worlds (this works well as the story is showing how much the world has changed over two centuries - the world is completely different?) Tell me what you guys think - it wouldnt be a very long story just a page or two.
