this is similar to something you just taught me through the scene-writing challenge. I found that with writing the prompt scenes, I wasn't personally invested in them, as they weren't my idea, they were a project - and as such for some reason I could just knock them out very easily, whereas story ideas I have come up with on my own, I labor over them for months if not years and can't write a single page of actual screenplay for them because I'm overthinking the whole thing.
I'm now trying to turn the scene prompts into a way to outline the stories, and bang out scenes from there. Will see if it works!
