It’s time to brainstorm, think of as many ideas as you want, write them down and find the one that makes you smile!
Where will your story be set (take place), and who are your characters? Will it be a child, an animal, or possibly an inanimate object such as a stone or house? Will your story be set in the forest, desert, a lab, or outer space?
All good stories have a beginning, middle, and an end. Where does your story start?
A story with no conflict can be rather dull. Find something that will cause some conflict between characters, or an obstacle they must overcome.
The turning point is usually in the middle of your story, and will help to make your movie interesting. It can be a eureka moment (a time where a character discovers a hidden superpower), or a surprise that throws the whole story into a spin.
A good story doesn’t finish without a final resolution. How will your character work through their challenges?
How will your story end? Happy? Sad? Cliffhanger?
You choose and have fun!
