A What If Exercise That Goes Beyond Anatomy

Here's a what if question that should get you thinking beyond the muscle in your chest.

What if you were born without a heart?

There are many ways that you can go about this issue. You can treat it as fodder for a short story that shows how you deal with the issue of not having a heart. You can also write an essay about not having a heart and how your life can change because of it. You can go abstract and talk about lack of emotions; or you can give your readers a dose of reality and talk science, medicine, and anatomy.

In any case, answer the what if with 500 words or less. Post your essay in the Comments section, or provide a link to it. Happy Writing!
