stupid plot tricks

I'm having loads of fun with this teaser from the Viable Paradise fantasy and science fiction writers workshop.

(Mike Ford used to teach at it, and I found it by reading Making Light's latest collection of Mike Ford links.)

I haven't used this particular set of tricks before, but I've used other semi-random ways of generating disparate plot elements or ideas and it sometimes gets my brain moving in interesting directions.

Do you watch Star Trek Voyageur? I am trying to convince my grl that B5 is better...she isn't buying it. Although she is watching B5 now with us. Any thoughts?

IME, the way to hook someone on Babylon 5 is to show them several episodes in a row, so they get a sense there's an ongoing storyline. The episodes that hooked me and the OH centered on "Sky Full of Stars" from the first season.

DS9 was the last Star Trek franchise series I watched more than a couple of episodes of.

I think that trying that technique plus my usual randomness injectors will be enough to make me want to do NaNoWriMo this year. :)
