Here’s one solution. See a cool movie. Embrace the fact that sometimes you need to get out of your own head and into somebody else’s. Somebody who makes the kind of movies you wish you could write. Somebody who comes up with the coolest plot twists and devices, somebody who makes an art form out of dialogue and action.
Make some notes, key in on a line or scene and see how it could fit into your project. After the movie you’ll get a new appreciation for the art form and do something to become a part of that world.
As for me, I’m going to see the new Mission Impossible movie right now, should be plenty of wild stuff in there to get the juices flowing.
Now go fire it up. J
