Welcome to another weekend. Are you ready to write? This week’s writing assignment may have you reaching for your DVDs.

Movie buffs could have an advantage with this writing prompt. It starts with a “what if.” What if Julia Roberts and Kevin Costner happened to bump into each other one day? And what if during that collision, Julia’s script pages got jumbled up with Kevin’s? What if some crazy writer decided to take the shuffled pages and create a whole new movie? (Actually, I think this may happen in Hollywood more than we might imagine.)

In my world, what happens is Dances with Wolves meets Sleeping with the Enemy and morphs into: Dances with the Enemy. What sort of tale would that be?

Which brings us to your assignment for the weekend. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Pick two DVDs at random and combine their titles to come up with a new masterpiece. Once you have your title, write a 100 word synopsis of the tale.
