Without you

Without You by Chris Hall lunasonline

On the blank screen
the cursor blinks

Impatiently?
Accusingly?

Like a heartbeat?
A countdown?

Close your eyes
Listen and look

Whoโ€™s there?
What are they doing?

Write it down
Quickly! Quickly!

Be nice to them
Nurture them

Or one day they
your characters, might run away.

And then where would you be?

    • Absolutely! I have one particular character who often bangs on my brain. He had a supporting but important role in the cast of my last novel and now and he wants the staring role in another book. Maybe he’ll get his wish ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • The main character of my first novel had only a minor role in the original concept, somehow she pushed her way to the front and I ended up writing the whole story based around her! ๐Ÿ˜
