Physical activity can get you going when you are immobilized. Get action in your life, and don't just talk about it. Get into the arena!
'Coraline' is Neil Gaiman's book, it sold a lot, it has a big fan base. It was originally conceived to be live action, but I never really wanted it to be. I always thought that it would work better as an animated film.
I can tell you that as a writer and as a reader, I regard character as king. Or queen. No matter how riveting the action or interesting the plot twists, if I don't feel like I'm meeting someone who feels real, I'm not going to be compelled to read further.
One cannot fashion a credible deterrent out of an incredible action.

If a situation requires sudden thought and action, the blood is promptly driven to the head.

John Mason Brown
