It's Oscars week, so let's take a trip to the flicks to inspire our latest creative writing exercise

Set the timer for three minutes. Make a list of your favourite films.

Pick one of them. Set the timer for five minutes. Write a brief outline of the story, highlighting the main action. Whose story is it?

For the remaining time, see if you can use the plot elements of the film to create a new story.
