  1. Wow, bringing back the 80's. 😍
  2. It was his memoir, and in an epilogue his literary agent writes of his passing (just before it went to publication). This guy was a national hero, so his passing was a big event (parade with full military honors).
  3. Mine died at the end of the story. Sad, but nothing out of the ordinary. Just death by natural causes. Probably not an example that fits your situation. 🤔
  4. For all of us missing fireworks this year (video turned sideways):
  5. I think these types of (temporary) pandemic bans aren't targeting Christians. They are part of sweeping bans that affect many. The CA singing ban is for "all houses of worship." That means all religions. While I think there's plenty of room for debate over how restrictive/effective these bans are, I don't think it's fair to imply that Christians are being targeted.
  6. Very interesting! That only adds up to 90%. I wonder, was the last 10% "Free"? A troubling trend, in my opinion. Too many feel they have to price low to sell. I've read many viewpoints on the $0.99 threshold, a majority of them negative.
  7. I took a quick look at a YouTube recap of this movie (it's still in post-production). First, anything featuring Paris Jackson isn't going to be taken seriously. Second, the movie plot is absurd even by Hollywood standards. It's likely a low-budget indie production heading to a quick death in whatever third-rate venues they get access to. In my opinion, the more Christians rail against this, the more attention {free publicity) it's going to receive. It's probably something the producers are hoping for. Best not to give something like this any more oxygen so it withers into obscurity, like many bizarre indie productions do every year.
  8. Yes and no. Sometimes repetition works, while other times subtlety works better. When it comes to mysteries and plot twists, I've found that subtlety usually works best. Repetition tends to call too much attention to something and ends up spoiling a plot twist.
  9. I've seen raffles done, which would allow you to pool your resources into something bigger, and more attractive to get people to sign-up.
  10. A little late to the party, as usual. Yes! At just about every stage. Most of the time it's all in my head. But sometimes it really is bad. And that's okay, because that's part of the writing process. I'm most worried when I think my story is perfect.
  11. I pray it's a threat that won't go very far, not that I'm aware of many statues of Jesus. Most churches in my area feature crosses, and the Catholic churches have statues of various saints. It appears all the statues being pulled down is finally waking the silent majority, who have thus far remained largely quiet during the BLM protests, rioting, looting, and calls for police de-funding. The children have been running loose for too long, and it's time for the adults to step forward and reign in the circus. Even the mayor of Seattle is finally moving to end the absurd "CHOP" zone.
