I chose the Writing Assignment Timeline to be about what world events happened during my character’s lifetime, some of the events affect her personally, affect London, or are just important things that happened in history that year. Most of the events listed on the timeline are noir-like in nature because they are considered catastrophes in one way or another. I decided to add a few positive events in the timeline so her life events weren’t completely negative.
