PIXAR’S 22 RULES OF STORYTELLING 19-22
19. Coincidences that get characters into trouble are great. Coincidences that get them out of if is cheating.
20. Exercise. Take the building blocks of a movie you dislike. How would you rearrange them into what you DO like?
21. Identify with your situation/characters. Don’t write “cool.” What would make YOU act that way?
22. Putting it on paper only allows you to start fixing it. If a perfect idea stays in your head, you’ll never share it with anyone.
