I would study and become a Bene Gesserit Reverend Mother, a woman who can control others using solely her voice. Reverence Mothers have other astonishing powers, as well. I would use my skills to help exploited peoples. Why do I want to be Bene Gesserit? I read the Dune series when I was in high school, and I still remember the Litany Against Fear:
"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."(less)

It's not a mystery, but I'd love to write about about my family, who emigrated to Newfoundland from Ireland and England in the 17th and 18th centuries. I think it would be fascinating to explore what life was like up there in the cold snowy North in See Full Answer

John Barth
“Anastasia...' The name seemed strange to me now, and her hair's rich smell. What was it I held, and called Anastasia? A slender bagful of meaty pipes and pouches, grown upon with hairs, soaked through with juices, strung up on jointed sticks, the whole thing pushing, squirting, bubbling, flexing, combusting, and respiring in my arms; doomed soon enough to decompose into its elements, yet afflicted in the brief meanwhile with mad imaginings, so that, not content to jelly through the night and meld, ingest, divide, it troubled its sleep with dreams of passedness, of love.”
John Barth

"Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.”
