Haha, my story ideas suck so much that they'd provide more of a guide for what NOT to do in order to come up with one.
I don't know why you're so hard on yourself. Your a really good animator, probably one of the best animators in this to be honest. I'm sorry that I can't give you much of a fight this round due to exams (my fault really should have started revising earlier) but I doubt i would have stood much of a chance against you even if i had the time to spare.
My process for writing in the last round was to wikipedia paradox and basically animate a version of an example of something called a 'bootstrap paradox'.
Interesting pointer Thor gave me last year was to rank all storyboarded shots from 1 to 3 with 1 being essential to the plot, 2 being useful and 3 being purely aesthetic. animate all "1" shots then "2" then "3". Wouldn't have finished this year without following this advice as my original planned animation was 4 times the length of what I actually had time to produce.
