A-Z: my theme is What I Learned About Writing from Watching TV aka Justifying my TV Habit.
Q is for Quantum Leap
An oldie but a goodie! Dr Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images which are not his own and hoping each time…okay I’ll stop now.
Quantum Leap is an example of taking a simple concept and running with it. Early Edition is similar (guy gets tomorrow’s newspaper, stops things from happening). Tru Calling the same (dead body speaks to Tru, she rewinds and saves them). In Quantum Leap Sam leaps into people’s lives and changes something. Puts right what once went wrong.
A simple concept pulled through can work very well in a novel. It has to be thought through, have heart and a main character behind it. But it’s worth thinking about.
Quantum Leap is one of my all time faves!
This weekly post has a simple aim: you sign up on the linky, you post a celebration for the week, and you hop around and celebrate with others. The celebrations can be as small as you like: sweeping that path, clearing that cupboard, finally getting a haircut.
My celebration is of course reaching Q in the A-Z!
Also my wee niece's birthday ;)
What about you?
Here's the linky - do have a hop around!
