“In the Bedroom” Writing Challenge

“In the Bedroom” Writing Challenge

From Screenwriters Toolkit

Two people are in bed. A siren or alarm is heard. Or the phone rings. Or a doorbell.


Ask yourself:

  • Who are these people
  • Who are they to each other?
  • What are the immediate circumstances?
  • How does the alarm affect them?
  • What do they do?
  • Are they at cross-purposes? How so?

Place ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances or extraordinary people in ordinary circumstances.
