Writing better comedy things by combining Sacred with the Profane... #ScreenwritingTips

Every Friday, I try to add to a growing pile of things which are Sacred, and things which are Profane.

If you put the two together, you spark concepts and stories which have more impact.

Like...



The imagery of Stephen Hawking

Brilliant mind and profound Science (Sacred, sacred)
...conveyed from a metal carriage, with a robot voicebox (Profane, profane)

Here's today's adds...



Reading
Friendship
Dreaming
Long-Term
Cows
Sleep
Whispers
The Moon
Sky
Prize


Trust
Family home
Laughter
Community
Making love
Promise
Cwtch
Accents
Naked
Medal


Got any others? Thanks if you leave some in comments below (or click here)
