I'm stuck. The story I'm writing is split into 2 parts, one chapter being set 18 years ago, the next chapter in the present, next 18 years ago, and so on. It should all link together in the end, but I'm reluctant to actually write the years anywhere, because then the writing will seem out-of-date. For example, the Lostprophets video of Last Summer says 'Class of 2005' makes the song seem so outdated everytime I see the video, even though It was only 4 years ago. Its the same with clothes, if theyre really old its okay, coz you can class it as vintage, but if its just a couple of seasons old, then its out of fashion & old news. Any ideas how to overcome this?
