Sometime the best ideas come from mixing a few old ideas together. I am a composer as well as a writer and I had a great time mixing genres. Once I mixed the theme from the old Batman TV show with the song "Wipe Out" for a cool marching band tune. It turns out, mixing can be a good way to go. Susan Collins, the author of the Hunger Games, mixed some old ideas to create her hit books (and movies). So next time you need an idea, try mixing a couple of old ones together and see what you come up with.
What do you think?
