Throw Back Weekend

What is it about music? A single song can take you back to a specific time in your life. An event. An favorite group of childhood friends.

As a writer, I have a love hate relationship with music. Sometimes it is absolutely essential to The Process. Other times, not so much.

Last night, I caught an old SNL sketch with Jon Bon Jovi. And the kids couldn’t figure out why I was so excited.

They didn’t understand VH1 or channels with music videos. Or SNL even.

Once it was compared to YouTube and searching for videos, they got it.

Then, I wondered, is that knowledge gap appearing in my writing? Could it be used to add tension and build character?

I have an age gap between two of the characters in my current WIP. I will be looking for the knowledge gap to go along with it. While jamming to some Bon Jovi.
