I was forwarded this clip by one of my private students. In one of my classes I had mentioned that if you think your ending isn’t working, as an exercise flip what happens, and spend 10 minutes writing the complete opposite ending. Even though it usually doesn’t yield a new, perfect ending, it often helps you come up with a few things that help you get unstuck.
Watch the above clip and use it as a guide for this next exercise.
As an exercise:
Take any scene in your story that you’re stuck on and write it in a different genre. If it’s a drama, write a comedic scene. If your story is science fiction, write it as a western.
You probably won’t end up using these scenes in your script but I bet you’ll discover something new about your characters.
