Hiya everybody! I've got a little question, but I need you to hear me out first to show exactly what I mean. Is it possible to use a fictional setting someone created in the past as some sort of homage to that writer's work? Not for personal gain but for paying homage to that person because he inspired you? I'm not trying to bludgeon the reader to death with it, either. I want to name it once, at the beginning of the story, as a nod or a wink, or however you call it. In order to clarify this I will give the exact example: ''Saturday...March 24, 1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois.'' I would like to change that to (will eventually be in Dutch, by the way): ''Monday...October 24, 2013. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois.'' The quote is from the movie The Breakfast Club, by the way. This is the exact way I want to write it down, because the book I'm writing is in memory of John Hughes as he's inspired my in numerous ways. It's a book written in his spirit, one that's clearly it's own story but inspired by the works of this wonderful writer. Would this be possible? I could of course change it to something else and keep the structure similar, but I would love to do it this way. Any advice?
