Credits Roll or Freeze Frame

You loved the movie or book you just read except for the end. Or maybe it was brilliant minus the clunky section in the middle. Rewrite the parts that didn’t work. .

Enhancing a plot or character written by someone else can clear a space for creative output. Once the rewrite of the perceived clunk is written~ you can release it and move onto something else. At times writers become distracted by media. Rather than obsess about what you’ve seen , use it.

Here’s the challenge: the next time you are creatively stuck~~rewrite a scene in a movie or section of a book that you know could be better.  This writing exercise helps you stretch your creative muscle. It may also spark a fresh idea for a novel or poem.
