The bar has been raised… how does that affect you?

Entertainment, the kind that we’re interested in: books, movies, blogs…etc.  Whatever your creative outlet is, you have been schooled.   If you look at what is out there it’s amazing.  I didn’t click on it but saw a post headline today about some film made entirely with a rear back up camera on a vehicle.

How do you even come up with that?

More importantly, how do we follow that with something interesting?

I don’t have the answer.

But… I don’t think you need one.  You just need ingenuity, a genuine message, and a format that is new or a twist on an old one.  The fact that the bar has been raised shouldn’t be seen as a threat to your work…far from it.

The bar being raised is your perfect excuse to give us your best.  I know you already are, but go back to it and ask:  …and then? ….what if? … suppose I reverse the ideas?… If this character were cast as…?  … The time line, is it possible that I can begin the story in the middle instead of where it starts now?

You get the idea, the bar being raised raises your level, now go show us what that is.
