    Wew.. You just said that is all in my mind Joseph. Why don’t try something new? Like a story of your life film or story of others..

    Have you finished one movie now? Maybe I can help with little script writing, but in imaginative Lego creation, I’m still poor on it.

    try keeping a notepad or something to write on your ideas… like maybe you thought of one scene that you may not need at the very moment… and then the next day you get a super idea that you could use for it,

    read short stories, watch youtube short films, or TELL YOUR FRIENDS your draft story so you can get suggestions

    One does not create a story right away. You must get something to look up or I should say an inspiration for you to create a better one. I suggest that you should create one base on your field of expertise and then again, the best story ever created! :D

    You don’t have to start out big, maybe even a small action or gag would work. It helps warm up the brain, and usually more ideas follow soon, some may even surprise you :D

    Or you can play around with the bricks for a while, building small sets or models until an idea comes up. Surround yourself with bricks! If creating something from scratch is really frustrating, try using existing themes first, then deviating from that.

    But when nothing else works…force yourself to create something out of ridiculous things. I usually ask a friend to randomly give 5 words that don’t connect at all, and I’ll make a story out of that. It works all the time!

    Good luck finding your muse! :D

    Curious to know which process you went through for your supposed film :)

    I use an outline. If I get stuck, I read or do things unrelated to Lego, then when I get back to it, I often find it easy to write and go on. Look for inspiration, watch a lot, read a lot and observe people a lot. It helps.
