How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers
I’m often asked for writing tips by aspiring writers and no matter how the markets change the tips remain the same.

1.       Read. I would recommend you read in the genre you want to write. Don’t just read for pleasure, be analytical and  try to discover what that author is doing successfully.

2.       Write. I know this sounds silly, but I can’t tell you how many aspiring writers I meet who spend months researching, who talk about the book they’re going to write and they never get around to putting butt in chair and just doing the work.

3.       Learn. Go to workshops to learn craft, take on-line courses to learn techniques to better your writing. Join  a writer group.  It’s wonderfully affirming to realize you aren’t crazy…you’re a writer and there are other people just like you!

4.       Be nosy. Become acutely aware of other people when you’re shopping or walking in the park or whatever. A snippet of overheard conversation can be the heart of a new book. Characters are everywhere and I believe most writers are observers who then create.

5.       Listen to the voices in your head. You aren’t crazy! Sometimes my best scenes arrive in my head before I put them on paper. Your subconscious often does your writing for you if you just listen.


6.       Write every day. At least for me, writing is like a jealous lover that demands attention.  If being a published writer is really what you want, then you should be actively working toward that goal every day. Dreams rarely happen unless you work for them. If you want to be a writer, then work it! 

After years in hiding, Josie Colton has her life back. But to settle a family promise, she must find an old clue buried at the Colton Valley Ranch. She enlists the help of ranch foreman Tanner Grange—in exchange for working as his twin toddlers' new nanny. On their search, the single dad soon begins to lasso Josie's heart. 
Tanner agrees to assist Josie and is alarmed by how the Colton beauty fits so perfectly into his life. He's got his hands full investigating the disappearance of his boss and caring for his little girls. When it's clear someone will kill to stop Josie from uncovering the clue, Tanner vows to protect her…for life!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
