SoCreate Screenwriting Software’s Weekly Writing Challenge – Prompt 7

Are you a writer looking for a way to boost your creativity? SoCreate's weekly writing challenges could be just what you need. Every week, we provide a new writing prompt that encourages you to think outside the box and generate fresh ideas for your writing projects.

For example, this week's prompt is an action scene featuring two brothers, Amar and Navi, attempting to escape someone chasing them through a crowded outdoor marketplace. Why are they being chased, and what does Navi have that the pursuer wants?

Weekly Writing Challenge

Writing Prompt

Complete this week’s writing challenge by clicking here!

  • Location: EXT – Outdoor Marketplace – Day

  • Characters: Amar; Navi

  • Scene Description: Amar (18) and Navi (21) rush through crowds of people doing their daily grocery shopping, clueless to the chase that’s ensuing. The brothers look back to see if they’re still being followed. Amar sees that Navi is clutching an item tightly.

  • Prompt: Write an action scene describing Amar and Navi attempting to escape someone chasing them. Why are they being chased, and does it have anything to do with what Navi is holding?

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.
