A Couple More “Responses” on Pixar Story Tweets

I have been using the Pixar Story Tweets as a basis to improve our story.  Here are the latest entries:

#9 When you’re stuck, make a list of what WOULDN’T happen next.  Lots of times the material to get you unstuck will show up.  Oscar wouldn’t go to bed.  Oscar wouldn’t take a vacation.  Ian wouldn’t feel guilty.  Ian wouldn’t stop trying to take the company.

#10 – Pull apart the stories you like. What you like in them is a part of you; you’ve got to recognize it before you can use it.  The stories I keep coming back to are:  Pi, The Social Network, and House of Cards.  I like the drive of Max in Pi.  I like the maneuvering and cunning of Frank in House of Cards.  Frank is an amazing bad guy.  I like how Social Network took something pretty geeky and made it interesting.
