It’s not what you think – or maybe it is…but a nemesis wasn’t what I thought it was!

On this screenwriting journey that I have chosen to take – I learn something new almost everyday. This lesson started one week ago when I was getting some thoughts from an executive on Worlds Away 3 (Into Amethyst Mists) – based on the novel of the same name.

He had two major notes for me: 1) what to the kids learn/get from their adventure collectively and 2) the creature Deimos they must battle which is the god of terror sounds too much like Pennywise from It.

So, I had to do more research to find something ‘different’ and include a life lesson…It’s amazing when things fall together when they seem to be falling apart.

This past week I started back to school, my father’s been in the hospital more than he’s been out (it seems), and I heard that a friend’s house burned down – losing everything. WOW! My first thought was that I needed to find some balance…we all need to find some balance…

Nemesis – the winged balancer of life, dark-faced goddess, daughter of justice. She is the distributor of fortune (both good and bad) as no one should have too much of either.

So not only was I able to find my balance and put everything back into perspective, I discovered the ‘creature’ the kids must battle and their life lesson that for every good or bad thing, try to find balance.

So my wish for you is may you all have balance and find your Nemesis!

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.
