Monthly writing prompt

For my 2020 monthly writing prompt, I’ll be using the game PITCH STORM (by the makers of Final Draft screenwriting software). I’ll draw one “character” card, one “plot” card, and one “notes” card–things that a studio exec might say in the middle of my insane pitch. Finally, I’ll set a timer for 45 seconds and write the pitch based on these cards.
