The version I saw was actually made in 1978. The animation is mixed with the Legend at the beginning appearing almost like Aztec art, and then shifting into more traditional animation with a blend of watercolour backgrounds. The main character “Hazel” is voiced by John Hurt.
Here’s the blurb.

Same here. I joined in early SE in 2018, but have become more engaged lately.
It is very nice to meet you too! 😊
2020 reminded me of how much I needed to connect with more people, and especially those in the family of faith. I am particularly grateful to have you guys, my fellow creatives, to share in our writing jo…[Read more]

So glad to hear that. Welcome back to the creative stream! May the gusts of Heaven be at your back and your sails full of the gathering push ahead.

There is pioneering work being done by an Australian Scientist name Dr. Barry Setterfield [a Christian man] on the well-founded implications that what physicists have traditionally thought was “the Divine Constant” the “speed of light” ( 300 000 km/s [299 792 458 meters per second] or 186 000 mi/s) is NOT constant, but actually has been proven to…[Read more]
I love some good sci-fi! My first stories were sci-fi. I also had drafted my first novel-length stories in Sci-Fi. Check out the other Groups in the Forum too. You can belong to several at the same time, you know. (I belong to “seven” (my magic number it seems), and one of them is “Horror Writers”…shhhh! Don’t tell! I put a scary,…[Read more]

Absolutely! I have posted 3 of these, so I was waiting for a few others to give it a shot before I posted some more. The reviewer/listener questions are the 2nd post, I believe, If you would like offer your personal review. Bethania did one, and Bronte did one, and Joelle did one.
I am still waiting for Cathy and Rose to give it a try too. The…[Read more]
We used to have domestic cotton-tail rabbits, which were usually a little floppy when they hopped around on the grass. On my granddad’s farm, however, there were wild jackrabbits that were lean and had longer legs and sort of bounded through the fields, chewing on my granddad’s cotton. These were a menace. Have you ever seen the movie Watership…[Read more]

So how did “Lucy’s” day begin to go south? How did you first begin to indicate something was going wrong?

I am curious, for all my fellow Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Writers out there, how do you begin your stories of this type? Are you willing to share some of your personal examples of your opening lines from a WIP that you use to grab a reader’s attention?
Here are a few that I have used in some stories:

Brian Stansell replied to the topic Should you kill a character (This is a lesson-ish) in the forum Characters 1 day, 8 hours ago
I do have a few of my characters killed in my WIP. They are killed by one of the main villains. They are part of the antagonist group, but strangely these henchmen-type characters are kind of endearing, so when this villain kills them, the reader will perhaps feel saddened by their deaths. There is a degree of e…[Read more]
Why thank you very much, Lily! I am happy to oblige. These 10 just bounced into my head like a bunch of floppy bunnies. I did visit your friend Hannah’s page and put in an additional two entries there in response to her challenge. I did love the water picture she put there.
Thanks so much! I saw your entries and I thought those ones were cool. Many blessings to you too!
(Floppy bunnies… huh, that’s a new one! XD We have wild bunnies up around our house; they don’t flop though…) XD
Good morning Natalie,
It is ironic, isn’t it, that the Bible has many very dark accounts in it, yet some Christian publishers shy away from authentic darkness that emerges into hope. In my Bible, Psalms 23 tells me that God walks with me in the “Valley of the Shadow of Death” and teaches me to “Fear no evil, for [His] rod (of…[Read more]

Welcome to the crew for you. We are often a misunderstood group because God calls each one of us down a unique path of gift expression. Even those closest to us won’t understand our drive and passion, because they may be gifted in other areas. It is not about fitting in, but finding where you fit, and I think you have…[Read more]
