Letting Go

Once in a while, you come across a picture on face book you just have to share… Like this one;

authors

At first, when I saw it, I was thinking, well, I don’t drink tea, but Satan and I usually have a good laugh and a cup of coffee… But then I had to admit to myself, that is not true.

It depends a lot on how the characters leave the story. Sometimes it is just unavoidable, and I see it coming like a train in the distance and I can’t get off the track to save my character… Sometimes it happens so fast, that even I don’t realize it until it is too late.

That is the beauty of being a writer, of being the hand that just writes down the story… Once you let the story unfold, you have very little control over what happens and you cannot- should not- step in as the author and magically save someone who should have, would have died…

The book I am writing on at the moment is taking me down a rather dark path. I usually have to write on it in the evenings, because I can’t start the day with entering that world, it will make me feel hollow for the rest of the day. I felt the same way when I was writing on the last of the Starstone Series. Like I was closing up a huge part of my life, getting ready to let it go… I am not sure yet, why I feel this way about the Legacy Series, so soon, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I will find out when I least expect it, and that I won’t be having a cup of coffee with Satan then…

Yes, I have cried over my own books in the past, and I know, how vain is that…? Well, I have to say, if the writer don’t feel it, how is the reader going to?

If I won’t miss my own, how could I expect someone else to miss them?

So yeah, I am a cruel kind of writer, but the one I am out to get the most seems to be myself… and on a completely unrelated issue- sort of- watch this video. This guy has got talent! And Let it Go is always a great song…

As a writer, what I find the hardest is always letting go. Not of the characters as such, but of the story… which is why I write series. One book would never be enough…
