Writer’s Wednesday and Bringing Amazon Trolls to Justice on National Wormhole Day

Nutschell is featuring me for her Wednesday Writer’s Workspace today, and I’m not a little alarmed that I’ve sent her a pic of my workspace! I also dole out writing advice and such, in the feature (heaven forgive me!). Please go say a kind word so I don’t utterly embarrass myself.
On a brighter note, today is on Einstein’s birthday, and Stephen Tremp, Laura Eno, and LG Smith are hosting the National Wormhole Day Blogfest. They want us to answer a simple question:

What would you do or where would you go if you could traverse a wormhole through space or time just once? Tell us in as little as 100 words what
you would do with your round-trip wormhole ticket. Or use your entire
post. It’s up to you!

If I could go through a wormhole, I wouldn’t just go through one. I shall be an Amazon Troll-hunting superhero, traveling through space and time to find the obnoxious folks who write 1-star Amazon reviews and the ones who pay to get them written.

Writers being carpet-bombed shall send out a distress signal the moment they spot an incoming troll review, and I shall fly at supersonic speeds to catch the cash-strapped, morally bankrupt, hapless troll; the evil, unfortunate, review mill owner; and the scheming little rat who paid for it all, and expose each of them in turn for who they are.

Sound good? If I indeed get said superpowers some day, I’ll need a cool-sounding name, a latex uniform, and a lot of back-story as to how I got said powers. I need suggestions  in the comments!

(I see a few incredulous folks in the comments about the existence of fake reviews. Read this, please.)
