I require an entire pot of tea to write a novel proposal.

FYI.

greygirlbeast quotes Christopher Wiseman:

"Why these creatures live to you is because you are still creating them. When you have finished creating them they will be as dead to you as the atoms that make our living food."

and oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

By the way, it turns out the station wagon is green. *g* My dad mis-remembered. (Which is good; I like green. It's my favorite color, tied with copper and black. Preferably all together.)

Green's my favorite color too. And copper. And black.
Twin!
"Why these creatures live to you is because you are still creating them. When you have finished creating them they will be as dead to you as the atoms that make our living food."

You know, I'm not sure this is always true for me. All my characters talk on for a while after the book is through ... some die after that sort of withdrawal time, but others don't, and keep nattering at me years after.

This is not particularly useful, as by then I'm trying to write about other people, but it happens. :-)
It's so odd. Once mine are done with their stories, they're done. They sometimes stop by for a chat, but I think they only show up to have their damage addressed, and once they're not broken any more, they no longer need me, so they go.

Sometimes, though, I know the story isn't over yet, because the character hasn't left. *g*

There's that, too!

Sometimes I think it's that it takes the whole process of writing a book for a character to turn real; and having finally gotten there, they're not quite willing to go away yet. (This gets in the way, of course, when what I most want when finishing one book is to jump right into another ...)

Racing stripes!
Philip Jose Farmer said he never wanted to end a series because that would mean all the characters were dead.
I wish my characters would die... they just seem to linger around in my mental retirement home waiting to be drafted by another plot.

And since the wagon is green... does this mean it'll be named Kermit?
...I believe we have a winner.
On a complete aside -- have you heard of gayatheistspy? Serious and not-so-serious geeking about Marlowe to the point of, or almost, ficcing about Marlowe as a kind of "cop tv series". 'Course, you might not want to go until your take has sold...
I have. I saw some of the initial posts before the community started. I'm afraid it annoyed me. *g* So I stayed away.
My husband and I read a survey where they told what personality type bought what color car- it seems geniuses drive green cars. He was proud as his current car is green. I, however have always loved green and I am not a genius...but I do so love the new copper color. My mom had a 70 Duster- in copper and she LOVED that car. The survey did not have copper on it but I bet only superior people pick it. Black is classy, but I was too lazy to keep the one car I had in Black properly clean. sigh.
I can use it as proof of my genius!
