    War Books/movies

    Having talked with lots of people that have been in war zones, and even people that work in disaster relief, it's not always about the explosions, blood, guts, and gore. Sometimes it's the child's shoe in the middle of the road where no child should have ever been. Sometimes it's the dying person that's holding your hand and crying out to Jesus. Some stories break your heart. After the tornado in Joplin, Mo. the disaster relief workers had some hard stories to tell. Children walking into the hospital with exposed spins. Parents that brought their children in without a limb that went back out to hunt for the missing limb in the wreckage of their lost home hoping beyond hope to help thier child not loss the limb forever. I've heard many vetrains say this greatly reminds them of thier time at war. There are always hard choices in war. Watch the American Sniper if you want a feel for some. Then there are the victims of the war that you'd never have thought of. Here is a link to a video of an interview with a woman that was forced into becoming a comfort women during WWII. She was 14. Warning this is a very graphic interview so brace yourself. It is NOT something kids should be watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsT97ax_Xb0

    I'll let you in on a secret us fast drafters have about our work. It stinks. Sure we write fast and throw in everything plus the kitchen sink, but at the end of the day, yours has more thought put into it. What this translates to if a lot more editing for us. So don't take your thoughtfulness for granted. It is a great asset to you! Nicholas is a professional screenwriter with years of experience on both of us. God called us to write, not compare ourselves to each other. He made you to have a process, that is different than mine. You have different strengths than I do. That's never a bad thing; it just means that God has different plans for both of us. Plans to prosper. Jeremiah 29:11 Sometimes, a lot of times for me, we have to remember to stay focused on God, and not compare ourselves to others. So big internet hugs for you. You can do this! We are all here to cheer you on!!!!
