She moved on to her next project and didn’t think about the novella again until the Hallmark Channel showed interest in developing her Christmas novellas into a movie for the holiday season.

Perhaps you’ve thought “I could do better.” Well, I am here for you! Please enjoy this helpful guide to choosing the story elements for your Hallmark-style romance novel.

And in a week or so, that should be done and I can work a lot on my fiction, which will be wonderful. I’m also going to do a few very Halloween-appropriate writing posts this month. However, as writers know, the first obstacle is to get your work seen and not looked over.

One dream 99 percent of my students share with me is, I want to write a Hallmark movie or novel.I call myself a dream inspirer. While I can’t guarantee any of them will one day pen a movie that airs on Hallmark, last week, I took the first step that I hope will get them one step closer to their dream.

The network will either forgo replying or flat-out reject it. Not all literary agents represent scripts, so it’s important that you utilize resources to target your search. Use books that list agents especially interested in representing scripts, or perform targeted searches on literary agent search engines, selecting those who represent scripts to contact. Hallmark looks for uplifting and inspirational novels related to romantic love, family love, and love between friends. The ideal story ranges from 75,000 to 90,000 words with relatable characters that overcome conflict and an ending filled with hope and happiness.
