The Genius of Sleepy Hollow

When I first saw the previews of the television series Sleepy Hollow, I must admit I wasn't sure about it. After a couple of episodes, I was hooked.

The Ichabod Crane character is well played by Tom Mison, who adds a flair of humor as he struggles with the task at hand while simultaneously learning the ways of the new digital world as his clothes and mannerisms are trapped in the days of the Founding Fathers.

It is fantastic from a storytelling perspective, to see this character navigate a smartphone and a vehicle.

For anyone who is stuck for a story idea, how to write their blog, short story, or come up with a video observation, one can allow television shows, such as Sleepy Hollow, to ignite the imagination.

Transporting an object or being into a different century offers up many angles to a story line.

Here are a couple of my favorite clips from the show. Happy writing.
