Where do they go?


A character’s passage follows a page.

Voices heard. Souls revealed. Love & hates, unfold as told.

You’ve shared their tears. Their sweat. Their fears.

Witnessed their good, the bad, the brutal and sad.

As their life led to one triumphant moment

until you type… THE END.

So, where do they go?

I think the question some of my followers might ask is where have I been?

Well, there’s a shine to my letter-worn keyboard, resulting in a completed manuscript that is now into its next phase.

But, I’m still lurking around asking profound questions, such as where do those created characters go? Imagining they’re continuing their own story. Or hanging out in some Green room with other waiting characters, like sobering leftovers from a Writers’ convention.

Yep, time to step away from the keyboard and blink… blink again, and visit the real world – but only for a little bit, because I think my fingers might suffer some keypad withdrawal.

  1. Finished manuscript? How exciting! Nice to see you even it is brief and virtual 🙂 My discarded characters live under the lemon tree in my garden and are plotting a revolt…

  2. Hulloooo Nik 😀 Glad to be back. Its the best feeling when you first finish a manuscript, both consuming & addictive.
    What a bunch of ‘sour’ characters you have. Or are they using the lemons for their tequila tree party?

  3. Am looking forward to finding out how it feels one day!

    Tequila party all the way. Bunch of no good, overwritten, drunken bums the lot of ’em 🙂
