“The best writing—that which is most interesting—often comes at the intersection of two seemingly unrelated topics.”
I don’t remember where I first read this advice, but the video below recently reminded me of this… and the video was so good I just had to share it.
When you can take two seemingly unrelated things (like Stormtroopers and dancing) and bring them together, you can make the ordinary become the unexpected—wowing your audience in the process.
So next time you’re stuck when trying to figure out how to convey an idea, try the unexpected. Look for something else interesting that you’ve learned recently, and tie the two things together.
Oh, and be sure to watch the video. It’s worth it.
