Kids Movies

I don't care what anyone says, I'm still a bit of a kid at heart and do enjoy those heartfelt kids movies. And I consider them "research" for my writing. Have you taken a look at any Disney movies lately? Take the Lion King II for example. Kiara and Kovu (I think that's how you spell it) fall in love pretty fast in like one scene and then the plot quickly turned into saving the pride etc.

Well, that is what happens in a lot of MG novels I've noticed. At least for younger readers.They are naturally shorter novels (20-40k) more if its historical, fantasy, or paranormal, but that's beside the point. Because they are shorter a lot of character relationship building tends to happen a bit faster to move the story along. That is just something I've noticed. If you still don't know what I'm saying, then watch the movie and then you'll probably understand.

Also! I can't wait for the new Princess and the Frog movie! I was starting to miss the old drawn cartoons ya know? Everything is all 3-D like Monsters Inc.

If you don't know about it then click the title of this post to check out the trailer.

Happy writing!

Finally Disney puts out a cartoon movie after who knows how many years. The critics are praising this one.

I know, how exciting is that!!! I totally wanted to be a Disney animator when I was a kid, but by the time I got to college, everything was CG :( So pyched to see something more artistically traditional, and so glad to see Disney *finally* branching out just a little bit from its normal princess "type".

That's true! I wish I could animate, but I like drawing better than computers...although, I wish my skills at both would increase!
