As they complete the final chapter of a novel, there are certain authors who regret that the experience is ending because they have come to know and love the characters.
Once the pen is put down, the familiar world they created will turn dark and cold. The people they created, the places they created, and the situations they created will return to the imagination from which they came.
It’s understandable to want to continue on with a situation that has become quite comfortable… but if you work up the nerve to let it all go, something far better – and something that is actually possible, and beautiful will take its place! 🙂
