Alternate Endings

I recently received coverage for The Vortex – a professional reader’s opinion as to whether or not a screenplay would be recommended for purchase. While it’s not there YET, I received some amazing feedback as well as suggestions on where and how to make it stronger and therefore saleable.

The reader commented that it was a strong start to a clean draft which shows my strength as a writer and pride I take in my work (thank you!) The other considerable strength is the concept which “has a lot of legs to make it to the big screen. It has sort of everything you want in a family movie.”

The main area that I needed to work on was the ending – too many loose ends. While it’s going to have franchise potential (just check out the book series), I need to tidy things up in order to make it feel complete and whole – think Harry Potter at the end of each movie.

So with that said – the ending has changed! Loose ends are tied up (but Fiona still has goat legs!) More details to come!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
