    All of this stimulated creativity and we showed each other ....-> Do we need 'and' ?

    "All of this stimulated creativity and we showed each other our stories."


    What I'm wondering about is if we need conjunction 'and' in the sentence.

    I'm wondering why you even thought it possible to omit it.

    I thought 'all of this stimulated creativity' is a adverbial phrase.

    No – it's a complete sentence.

    You thought wrong.

    All of this (subject)stimulated (verb) creativity (object).
