Is Avatar's Religion Blending a Cautionary Tale for Christian Writers


3 Theolgical Challenges for the Christian Writer

"...This is not your so-called classic human tale of the struggle between good and evil. Hades, but you humans always have a way of distorting the truth into something utterly simplistic and banal--not to mention trite." - an excerpt from Demon: A Memoir(Tosca Lee, NavPress, 2007)

Merry Christmas! This weekend my sister and I, who are big Sci-fi and Zoe SaldaƱa fans watched Avatar Movie 3D.
Avatar's main conflict is between the humans of 2015 and the Navi's. The Navi's are an ethnic enclave of Pandorans, who once befriended the humans when they first arrived until they realized that they weren't another Pandoran race, but humans in disguise, hence the name Avatar. We then learn the true purpose of the human's arrival to Pandora. They desire to retrieve unobtainium, a mineral vital to human survival. Unfortunately for the humans, the largest deposit of this mineral lives under Kelutrel, the Na'vi's Hometree.Thus, the problem. The problem gets deeper when a human Avatar Jake Sully not only falls in love with the Navi princess, Neytiri, but Pandora and the Navi way.(similar to Dances with Wolves.)
It was a visually stunning movie. I liked it. From my internal editor's point of view the ending satisfied it's audience. Many clapped after it was over, including my sister.

However, what stood with me longer than anything was it's hierology's blending and watering of Christian theology.  Three things concerned me: Read more Here

Best Novels Turned into Christmas Movies; #1: A Christmas Carol


This movie is #1 for 1 reason. It's so good that it's constantly duplicated, readapted and upgraded. Check out this small list below of movies that have taken Charles Dicken's novella from a ghost story to a classic:
  • A Christmas Carol
  • Ghosts of Girlfriend's Past
  • A Diva's Christmas
  • Scrooge
  • Scrooged
  • Mister McGoo's Christmas Carol
  •  a longer list here. wow

Best Novels Turned Christmas Movies: #2: The Bishop's Wife

Ha! I can't put the two together, although The Preacher's Wife and The Bishop's Wife were both based on Robert Nathan's book. However, I am a die hard Cary Grant fan and when I learned that Penny Marshall was upgrading it with a gospel feel (The Preacher's Wife) I was giddy. Cary Grant's The Bishop Wife is my #2.

If you have favorites, share them here or on Facebook or Twitter. I would love to know!

Best Novels Turned into Christmas Movies: #3:The Preacher's Wife

I have this movie in queue in my room right now. The Preacher's Wife, It is the Penny Marshall version Robert Nathan's novel, The Bishop's Wife(The Bobbs-Merrill Co (1928).) I love this movie because Denzel Washington, Gregory Hines and Whitney Houston are in it.

More about the book:
The angelMichael comes to fill a vacancy on the staff of a local bishop. While there he falls in love with the bishop's wife. He offers her a proposition: leave her husband for him. The movie adaptation of the novel is different than the movie.

Best Novels Turned Christmas Movies; #4: The Note

I am a big Angela Hunt fan, so of course the Hallmark Channel's movie adaptation of The Note makes the best novels turned Christmas Movies List. I love that it is also Christian Fiction.

Synopsis: Newspaper columnist Peyton MacGruder is proud of three things--her immaculate VW Jetta, her status as a strong single woman, and her ability to write fast--until her editor warns that her column is failing. She is given three weeks to change either her approach or her job. 
As Peyton considers her future, the unthinkable happens--PanWorld Flight 848, en route from New York to Tampa, bursts into flame and crashes in Tampa Bay. All 261 people aboard are killed. For a week Peyton and her fellow reporters cover the nation's worst air disaster with numbed emotions, then they try to move on. 

Peyton is wondering how to attract readers when a woman approaches and hands her a plastic bag that washed up behind her house. It contains a note, almost certainly from the doomed flight, with a simple message-- “T--I love you. All is forgiven. Dad.” Peyton now has the perfect story to attract readers . . . and a tool to uncover lessons about love, forgiveness, and about herself.

His father objects, but Todd’s persistence quickly wins out. Soon the McCrays are the short-term foster family for a lovable pooch the young man names Christmas.

But what about all the other dogs who will be forced to spend the Yuletide season in cages? In the days that follow, Todd uses his special gifts of persuasion to encourage his hometown to participate in the “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.” What follows from his small act of kindness will teach his family, and his community, about peace on earth and good will toward men—and animals.

How to Keep your Writing Momentum During the Holidays

If you are a hardworking Master's Writer like me, then I'm sure you are challenged during the holidays. I have to complete two magazine articles, three book reviews, blog maintenance, two editing projects, a devotional, three mag queries to pitch, and an ambitious wish to complete a first novel draft before my birthday in February. I want to lock all those commitments away until after New Year's. However, I have deadlines, personal goals, and promises to keep. So how do you keep your writing momentum up when there are so many reasons roadblocks, entertainment requests, distractions, and family obligations on your plate? Here are three things that I am doing. You are welcome to do them to.
  1. Pray More
As The Master's Artist we need to stay vertical--tapped into our Source. Praying not only keeps us focused it answers our daily challenges, it directs our paths, and sometimes we receive the necessary adjustments we need to make to stay our course. During this time of year I pray more and eat less. I pray more and watch TV less. I pray more and chat online less. Get my drift. I use my church's advent calendar to keep my prayers in perspective during the holidays.

    2.    Maintain a Writing Schedule

I am a fan of (RTM ) Remember the Milk. This online tool allows me to keep up with my todo tasks and my clients via Google Mail or my Palm smartphone. I never miss a deadline with this. I also plan writing time here. However, I get a slap on the wrist for sometimes ignoring my writing time. Sometimes--oftentimes--I use this time to answer more emails, edit a client's work, anything but write. This reason is why praying more at this time is vital to me. If schedule my writing time immediately after prayer and meditation.

    3. Commit to Completing only 3

Do you really think I will complete all that work? Come on now. LOL. I have overachiever syndrome. I double book my ownself. Believe me I'm getting help for this. In fact, this last tip comes from my life coach, Wendy Bailey. Commit to 3 Projects per day. I even go further as to responding to only 3 emails, ,taking only 3 calls a day during this time, and 3 tweets. After all this is a time of glory, reflection, praise, and family time. We have to honor this time with our undevoted time. So I only do 3 a days(one for the father, son, and Holy Spirit.) If you hear from me, then feel special. You are 1 of 3. LOL. Most importantly, it frees of your time to write.

Hey, did you notice I only gave you 3 tips?

3 Press Release Don’ts for Authors

As a literary business hybrid, I get to see the publishing industry in three dimensional terms. As a writer, I share the same pangs and long hours of marketing my latest writing project or literary event. As a publicist, I spend hours creating the best press release for my clients with hopes that it grabs my media friends attention. As a member of the press, I take great care in scrutinizing author requests to be featured in on my blog or magazine department or radio show in my charge.

All three aspects of me require basic marketing acumen. All further require a brilliant press release(either on the part of me creating one or me receiving one) to help me stay successful.
What I’ve found is that my press release submission ratio is higher than most and my press release acceptance ratio is very high. In short, I’m pretty successful creating press releases, but unsuccessful retrieving good ones to help me satisfy my many writing assignments.

So I thought it would be best if I share the three major guffaws a writer should never take when creating a press release. All three are mistakes I’ve witnessed and/or participated in before I knew any better. Click here to continue.
