Oh, Peggy, I know how you feel! When I finished Crimson and Clover and there was nothing more to tweak, to edit, to add, I felt like Jay and Katie and Maureen and Adam had all abandoned me. I think only another author can understand how lonely it is to not hear those voices in your head anymore. But then the characters in the new book introduced themselves and I happily fell into their world. And when they move on, there’ll be more.
Peggy-I’m sure your new imaginary friends will be just as enjoyable as the ones you just let go of! Here’s to a new obsession! You take it and run with it, girl!
Thanks, Juli. You’re right. Only another writer–or a two year old with an imaginary playmate–understands. I’ll take your reassurance that I’ll fall as easily into the world of my new characters and run with it!
I do love new obsessions, Mary!
I have missed the characters in every book I’ve finished once it’s done and I’m afraid of finishing the series I’m writing because then they’ll be out of my life forever. I guess that’s what re-reading is for, though?
I hadn’t thought of rereading–maybe because I’m afraid I’ll see things I’d want to change. I’ve even changed things I’ve written when I’m doing a reading–after publication!
I will start your series soon. Your obsessions will become my new obsessions. That’s the way of it. Author to reader, and so on and so on. 🙂
Thank you, Ms. Cordes. Your perspective is wonderful!
I missed the characters in every book I read and the ones I write. I feel your pain. It is so hard to move on and say good-bye…even if I’m sure there are new friends in my future.
Thanks for stopping by, Nancy. And for letting me know I’m not alone!!
