Introducing Creative Conversations

It happened without warning.

It was a regular Thursday afternoon, and I was helping unload the groceries from the car when an idea blazed through my head, so brilliant that it struck me motionless.

And I knew a new age of the world was beginning.

Just kidding.

In all seriousness, I love this idea and I hope you do, too.

What is this idea, you ask?

A string of unrelated quotes from well-known spec-fic characters, pieced together so that it sounds like they’re talking to each other.

I call it Creative Conversations.

I’ve seen variations of this elsewhere, so I can’t take credit for being the first to come up with the idea, but I thought it would be a fun and different take on a blog post.

Are you game to give it a shot?

Great. You’ll be my guinea pigs. *rubs hands in anticipation*

If not, I’m sorry I bored you. I was desperate for a blog post and this idea took me by the throat and demanded that I give it life. Under pain of death.

Without further ado, I present to you the first installment of Creative Conversations.
