Putting the worst possible two things together for better script ideas... it's Sacred and Profane! #Screenwriting

Every week I catalogue ten new things, from the Sacred and the Profane.

There's a theory that if you put the two together, you might end up with more provocative story and scene ideas.

Think this one's my absolute favourite.

Steptoe and Son playing scrabble



From the scene from that sitcom here (on youtube).

Family game (Sacred, sacred) vs. Profanities (Profane)

Language (Sacred) vs. Point scoring at all costs (Profane)
