  • Location: INT – The Family Beach House – Evening

  • Characters: Cori; Drew; Juliana; Chris

  • Scene Description: The family dinner is progressing smoothly, with Drew (22) passing the mashed potatoes to his sister Cori (32). Middle sister Juliana (30) is about to take a sip of wine when a knock at the door and the sight of Chris standing there makes her nearly spit it out.

  • Prompt: Who is Chris to these three siblings? His presence triggers an immediate negative reaction from Juliana and Cori towards Drew, leading to a full-blown food fight. Write a scene that describes the exchange of actions and words between the siblings as Chris stands outside the door, watching in surprise.

Extra Credit: Use SoCreate's Notes feature to add notes to yourself about what will take place in each Action Stream Item before you start writing. For example, you could write a Note to yourself that says "Amar needs to throw something to Navi here," if you don't yet know what he will throw. Or "Should Navi make a gesture here?" To make a note, simply click the 'N' in any Action Stream Item editor. Doing so will change everything you write to highlighted blue text while you're in this mode, so you can quickly differentiate Notes from other text. Learn more about using Notes here.
