One of the many Christmas movies aired on the Hallmark channel this year told the story of a female marketing agent who had to find the right actor to play the role in a commercial. The vender hadn't been pleased with previous choices offered by other agents, stating the actors lacked heart. He threatened to pull his account.
While doing errands the next day, she met a man who captured her attention. He portrayed a genuine kindness not only in voice and facial expression, but also with a sincere heart--the very ingredient missing from the other candidates. He agreed to do the commercial if and only if he sampled and liked the product. Later, his acting immediately won the favor of the vendor.

3. Do you get the proper rest from writing, taking five minute breaks from looking at the screen every hour, refreshing your thoughts to find a better idea?
