Key points: Got an idea? Maybe a little world-building? Think about who is most at jeopardy. Just toss out people who will be involved. Where does it break down? Think of possible characters. What are the implications? How can it get worse? How can we resolve this? What are the possible endings? What do your characters want? How can I make the setting, characters, and plot original, distinctive, interesting?

[Brandon] Okay. Cool. We've got a really cool story here. I'm very pleased with this. I think we're out of time. But a writing prompt? Writing prompt, writing prompt. Okay. I'm going to not use fish-birds. I'm going to make you use fish-birds. I want you to come up with an animal that both swims and flies, like an amphibian. Half of its life is underwater, half of its life... Like an insect in our world. But for some new reason that they fly and swim. This has been Writing Excuses. You're out of excuses, now go write.
