Previous episode: Three Storytelling Gurus
You teleport into the kitchen of my fortified, parallel-world copywriting lab compound.
My wife, Hayley, is making a cup of tea … totally unaware of your presence.
She turns around and—
Startled by your sudden appearance, she nearly drops her cup of tea.
“S-sorry!” you stammer. “I didn’t know the remote was going to land me here!”
“Oh, don’t worry,” she says, with a wave of her hand. “You know, Daniel gets quite a few opt-ins every day … so copywriters spawning in random places is kiiiiiinda a regular thing around here.”
(Whoa. You never thought of that. Who knows how many times Hayley has had this very conversation today 🤯)
You’re just about to ask Hayley some more questions when—

“What was that?” you ask.
Hayley narrows her eyes.
“I don’t know … and that’s what bothers me.”
“Because that noise came from

“The … Original Ideas Vault?”
“All Daniel’s original ideas live in that vault,” Hayley explains. “We’ve had plagiarists, swipers, and even other well-known copywriters attempt raids plenty of times already…”
She draws a pistol and cocks it.
Then, putting a finger to her lips to signal to you to be quiet…

She kicks down the door of the vault, pistol up…
And then — at the sight of what’s inside — lets out a cry of surprise…
