1.Please come up with three high-stake situations where (at most) two characters have to make a critical decision on a conflicting issue of varying consequences. Make the situation happen in a single location (or two locations at most) such as in the bedroom and the kitchen or the whole thing happens in the coffee shop and its parking lot. Etc. You are describing a situation and not the whole story. That means there is no span of 5 weeks and 3 different continents for the described situation. Although there might be a background story, you have to develop a single (or two) scene situation that happens within a span of 30 min at most. Describe the situation in 3-5 sentences in a brief paragraph.

I once sat in a coffee shop and spent 20 minutes doing this exercise myself. I was able to come up with the following five examples. It was not refined after the initial conception, thus these are just crude notes, but this level of writing is good enough for this assignment. Please take your story to the level of reality where you feel daring and a little challenged. Please consider yourself capable of handling realities beyond the Disney TV dramas. Notice that all of the following situations happen as one or two scenes. Example 1 would be filmed entirely in the woman’s bedroom. Example 2 would be in his apartment. Example 3 could be in a parking lot. Example 4 could be anywhere but it’s just a scene. Example 5 would be inside a moving car, and on the side of a highway, basically two scenes.
