A GOOD BOOK HAS NO ENDING.
(R. D. Cumming)
Isn't that the truth? Think about all the books you love. Do you ever play out the rest of the story as you go about your day? Do you ever wonder what happened to all the characters, wonder what they're doing right that minute as you're washing dishes or folding laundry?
Hmm, or maybe that's just me...
Let's keep this in mind not only as we write but also as we buy books to give as gifts. Who couldn't use a little magic in their lives...and that to me is what a truly good book/story is - a little bit of magic we can hold in our hands, in our hearts, and then take with us as we go about our lives.
