Webinar Summary

In this challenge, members were asked to write a scene of conflict. Remember that "conflict" does not necessarily mean "a scene where two people fight"! It means a scene in which two characters with opposing points of view attempt to get what they want in the scene. So, what do they each want? What methods do they use in an attempt to get it? Seduction? Deceit? Force? Honesty? Are they successful in their attempts? The possibilities are endless!

The Write Now Challenge: What's in the Box?

We're back in the Writers' Room for the Write Now Challenge Webcast: "What's in the Box?" This challenge came from the mind of Writers' Room Member Louisa Kendrik Burton: "We are all given the same premise or a Logline. Everyone writes 3 pages. [Let's] see how different they all are even though they are based on the same premise!" This is a fantastic idea and brilliant in it's simplicity and originality. So, without further ado here is the logline as the prompt: "A down-on-their luck janitor receives a mysterious package on their front steps, with a note promising inside is the solution to all their problems, but it will come at a cost." During the webcast we heard from a number of members who took the logline is several different directions - all with original and compelling ideas.
