HAPPILY EVER AFTERS… | Jennifer Probst


  1. Jennifer,

    My boys are into Star Wars too! I grew up with the films and they mean alot to me. It’s fun to share with them. It’s hard to keep them away from my memorbilia though. (I have comic books and trading cards that are more than 30 years old).

    I totally agree about the HEA. It helps me round out the things I have to deal with in life.

    You are a very insightful writer. I enjoy reading your posts.

    Abbi 🙂

    Cute post. Did you know that in the empire strikes back when princess leia tells hans solo she loves him before he gets frozen the script had him replying – I love you too – but Harrison Ford said Hans Solo would never say that and he came up with the cocky line of “I know.” He was so dead on.

      Guess what? I literally just watched that movie 2 nights ago, my boys were transfixed and I saw that part and remember thinking, That is so him. Great trivia. Does it say something about how I always preferred Hans Solo – alpha male – to nice Luke????

  3. Liz says:

    We do so love those alpha males!

  4. I smiled all the way through this post. Your son is a treasure beyond compare. Out there in the big world is a little girl growing up with no idea of what a lucky woman she will one day be when she meets your boy and together they begin their happily ever after.

  5. That must say something about me. I so preferred Luke Skywalker over Han Solo. No wonder I have trouble writing alpha males!

  6. What a great post. There’s nothing wrong with happy endings especially when we write. I seldom kill off a majoy character and I write some fantasy. I do kill off villains and rather enjoy it. In fact, in my mystery series, several of the dead ones my heroine did not kill, are based on people I wanted to kill in reality. Writing can be so cathartic.

    Hello Jennifer,
    I really liked the topic of this newsletter since it’s why I’ve started writing children’s books. I love all the sci-fi movies and tv series. I also love ones with magic, fairies, even vampires. Animated cartoons are also a lot of fun – Shrek, Finding Nemo, and Wall-E (my favorite). They allow our imagination to run wild where everything and anything is possible. I’m applying your son’s rules to my writing! J:O)anne

      I love seeing you here! I am so glad you get it – they are so much fun and have depth. Children teach us so many lessons if we just stop and listen. Children’s books are full of that magic and wonder – I love your site.

  8. Regina, that is the nicest thing you can ever say to a mom – thank you!!!

  9. I agree, Janet, I am thinking of writing something soon about someone evil in the corporate world – and I know just who I am going to make the villain! Thank goodness for fiction!
