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.
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.
