It should be satisfying to finish a book, even a celebration if you wrote it. And it is - when you finally get to that very last word. But as the last chapter opens on two books, I know I don't want to finish either the book I'm reading or the one I'm writing. The characters have become like old friends in worlds that seems to me to be almost as real as, well - the real world.
So now that both books are almost over, I find myself dodging endings. Maybe that's because I'm not sure what's going to come next.
Which in that stack of TBR's do I pick up? Which idea do I run with in the next story I write? The possibilities seem to stretch endlessly.
Reading or writing - do you finish books reluctantly?
