Okay, I’m not desperate, just having fun with a play on words about that rom-com with Madonna and Rosanna Arquette, “Desperately Seeking Susan.” The film premiered in 1985. It was Madonna’s first major screen role. It is one of my favorite movies of all time, because it captures an era and area–1980s New York punk scene–so well.
Think 1985… where were you at in your life? What story could you tell that would capture that era and area?
Here’s a previous post of mine set in that very year: I hope it sparks ’80s memories for you, too. “I Loved My ’65 Valiant Like Family”.
I’m eager to feature the work of other writers on this blog. Let me hear from you! Send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll find guidelines for guest submissions here.

I couldn’t find the link to the 1985 posting. And, I added “Susan” to my watch list.
