  1. Oh, you poor dears, that is so much to handle!! I will make your family a special object of my prayers.
  2. WOW!! This is terrific! Thanks so much for sharing, KR! I had never looked at writing quite that way before. I'll keep these tips in mind anytime my writer's block tries to kick in.
  3. I'm definitely praying for you! So sorry you're going through this.
  4. Absolutely! A person would have to be a total jerk to do that.
  5. William, I just saw this; I certainly hope and pray that things will be worked out between you and your sister and your nieces. I don't think that is any reason for her to keep your nieces away from you. Just because you have written some stories that may feature subject matter of that sort, it most certainly doesn't mean that you yourself are violent or aggressive in that way! I'm sure you two will be able to straighten things out.
  6. Hi, Fay! Welcome to Christian Writers! We are all so excited to have you with us. Screenwriting is a fascinating aspiration; I've tried my hand at it a time or two myself, but mostly I work on either songs or short stories or novels. God Bless you and your work! You ought to try again sometime, Sarah! I'll bet it would be really good! I tried writing a musical based on the old Leo Tolstoy story "Martin Avdeitch" once; I had everything planned perfectly and felt it would be a wonderful smash providing a wonderful Christian message for the world; then...certain circumstances...caused me to abandon the idea. While at times I have been slightly tempted to start over again, it would never be the same. If somebody else wants to create a Martin the Cobbler musical, they can have at it. All I know is, it's not gonna be me.
  7. "It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up." Okay, just kidding with that one. Anybody who's a Snoopy fan (yes, I'm looking at you, Lynn! :D) will recognize that immediately! I honestly don't really have a real favorite first line; most of the time I'm TERRIBLE at choosing favorites because I have so many things I enjoy! But my favorite Scripture is Psalm 103, aaaaannnnndddd...hmm...what else do I have an absolute favorite of? Well, one of my favorite movies is Moms' Night Out, but I digress...:D
  8. I was a little late to this conversation, and it looks like PenName & Alley already had some good things to say about the matter, but I hope I was helpful a little.
  9. While that's a bit of a hard question, I guess maybe the best way to make people like them is to make them characters that your readers can relate to. Just give them really likable personalities and try to make them someone your readers can really feel for. Characters I like in a good story always feel like old friends to me by the time I'm through; that's what you might want to aim for when you consider creating your characters.
  10. Sounds like a wonderful and intriguing plot, Sarah! I'll be more than happy to help you in whatever way I can. It could be an awesome idea if later on in Zach & Charity's life they might come to realize that God had a special purpose for taking their parents home when He did; they might discover that their death really was not in vain, and maybe something even worse might have happened had it not turned out the way it did. They could end up seeing God's miraculous works through them in other people whose lives were touched by them in some way.
  11. Maureen McCormick was the actress who played Marcia on the Brady Bunch; EClayRowe is referring to the GIF clip of her being beamed by the football. I actually didn't know it was a surprise!
  12. There's another one that you might like that I don't know if you've seen or not; the one that's done like the trailer of a horror movie, and the girl's "perfect southern husband" slowly and creepily (and hilariously) transforms into a Yankee!
  13. The part where she started counting to the computer is too funny!! If only we could really get technology to listen to us like that. (Sigh) 😳
