Here’s a quick exercise to see how fast you can come up with a story. Turn your television on to a random channel and wherever it lands use that channel to help you come up with a story. Think about who the characters are and what’s going on with them. What does these people want. For example maybe you land on a commercial and it’s about a housewife using a special product to clean floors. Does she like doing this or is she an anti-Stepford wife type of person?
Even it it’s a commercial or infomercial. Don’t cheat and have fun.
