  1. Yes, you can see why I found it upsetting.
  2. Wow, thank you so much everyone! Really happy to be here!
  3. Yes, its called UnPregnant, it's about two friends who take what is supposed to be a comedy road trip to the nearest abortion clinic that isn't legally bound to tell the parents their daughter just had an abortion. The spokesperson behind the making of the film said they wanted there to be less stigma attached to abortions. I was very upset when I read about it.
  4. Thank you! It's nice to meet you to Sarah!

    Hi Norma! Welcome to the group!
  6. Wow, thanks for the greetings everyone! I feel really welcomed!
  7. I agree the up close and personal confrontation sounds more jarring to readers and perhaps even more satisfying depending the motives for revenge. Some evil people like to watch the one they hate suffer, as opposed to a quick death or one that they watch from a distance. I definitely suggest a closed space like a house for this climax, good luck getting everything sorted out.
  8. I used to focus on just writing the story and encouraging the theme that naturally emerged through that, but recently I've started to think that it's more important to begin with the theme and to write the story around that. It's harder for me to come up with the theme first, but if I don't I end up writing a story more for entertainment than for the glory of God. Preachiness is a concern, but I think if I want a good story I can iron that out, and that preachiness isn't as great a threat as writing only to entertain and for no other purpose. My themes most recently have been trying to correct various lies. For example, a few days ago I heard netflixs is releasing this movie promoting abortion, that upsets me. So I found every Bible verse that I could about children and birth and I started writing a story around those verses. I don't want to make it preachy, so its going a bit more slowly, but because I'm not writing it just to amuse myself it has a bigger purpose. A reason to be written more than so many other things that I have written over the years. Hope this is helpful, Suspencewriter.
  9. Hi JasmineH! Do you still need betareaders? Your story sounds interesting and I'd be happy to betaread for you if you need anymore help.
  10. Were you able to get the beta readers you needed?

    I'm new!

    Welcome Mabel! I'm encouraged to hear your writing a story about sharing the gospel! It's been so long since I've seen anyone write about that subject.
  12. Welcome Janell! I love the sound of your project! The world can always use more Bible picture books, it's hard to find a good one. I read one the other day that was unbiblical.
