Many writers advocate judicious eavesdropping on others’ conversations as a means to gain inspiration. This morning I stumbled across a blog called Eavesdrop Writer that’s all about this particular form of inspiration. Today, visit that site and pick a conversation from those related on the front page. Use it as part of a longer scene, or use it to inspire one or more characters who might have uttered those bits of dialogue.

    Hello! Thank you so much for linking to my blog here. I’m always thrilled to find fellow eavesdroppers or learn of other writers who have found inspiration from my eavesdropping. I hope your readers found my posts creatively stimulating, or at the very least, entertaining!

    You have a knack for jotting down and sharing really fascinating tidbits; it’s hard to imagine a writer who wouldn’t find something from your blog inspiring!
