Yesterday, a funny thing happened. Stuck wondering what to do with my novel, I thought back to another character I had abandoned years ago. She existed in another story with another set of lives.
But there are some characters that stay with you, that make you fall in love.
So I found a place for her, a small place, because she has always existed in small moments. And I was happy to have her because, my goodness, I needed her. It felt right that she changed everything, that she mended a little of what was broken.
Any abandoned characters you’d like to honor in the comments? Feel free. 🙂
