39 Imagine that the local film studios have announced a contest for the best action film script. There will be allowance for youth and lack of experience, probably undeveloped talent for this specific activity, but the initiative is encouraged. Now you think that a lot of bed-time stories, which you heard back in your childhood, sounded pretty sinister and they might well be developed into a respectable script for one of the various kinds of action films. The list of ideas is innumerable: "Doughnut (Kolobok)", "Red Riding Hood (Chervona Shapochka)", "Wolf and the Seven Kids", etc.
You decide to participate, think of a suitable plot, possibly, introduce additional characters, but you feel you need somebody to work jointly with, to generate ideas and, perhaps, give you confidence.
Try to sell your desk-mate on this idea. Tell him/her about the contest, the terms and share your initial ideas. The friend will either be critical and try to stay clear of it or will contribute their own ideas. The objective is to find a way to concoct a winning script that will correspond to and comply with the requirements of the genre.
40 Share your draft ideas with the class. Listen to the praise or criticism and respond to either of them appropriately.
