FUN ASSIGNMENT Due Tuesday, JULY 11, 2023:
You choose a book that has been made into a movie so that we can talk about them. Jot down differences between the book and movie. Choose your favorite story or a new inspiring one. Here are some examples to consider but don't be limited by this list:
WAR ROOM, PRAYER IS A POWERFUL WEAPON by Chris Fabry
& movie -- WAR ROOM
THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusak
& movie --THE BOOK THIEF
THE ULTIMATE GIFT by Jim Stoval
& movie -- THE ULTIMATE GIFT
FATHER CHRISTMAS series by Robin Jones Gunn
& movie -- FATHER CHRISTMAS (Hallmark movie)
THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE by Max Lucado
& -- THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE
LEFT BEHIND series by Jerry Jenkins &
& movie -- LEFT BEHIND, RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST with Kevin Sorbo
LITTLE WOMEN by Louisa May Alcott
& movie -- LITTLE WOMEN (Many choices.)
BEN HUR by Lew Wallace
& movie -- BEN HUR
SHERLOCK HOLMES by Arthur Conan Doyle (series)
& movies -- SHERLOCK HOLMES movies
THE QUIET MAN And Other Stories by Maurice Walsh

MURDER SHE WROTE by Donald Bain, Jon Land, & Terry Farley Moran

There may be non-fiction book/movie combos, and if there are you can do that genre also. Wouldn't it be nice to see just what movie produces trim out of books to make fabulous movies out of the same idea. Would you like your novel made into a movie? Maybe this assignment will help you to write an attractive-to-movie-producer story or book!
Spring is in the air, and we are hoping for warmer weather so that we can enjoy flowers like this! But in the meantime--let's write!

Words are not just words. They are thoughts and inspiration that have been behind every relationship and every deed--good or bad throughout time. If you have that burning desire to communicate and explore, come peruse my pages, teachings, and short stories. Allow inspiration to anchor your dreams on the written pages of memoirs, devotions, poems, or stories, both short or long! Luxuriate in the creativity you were born to share!
