Everything Has a Beginning and an End by Linda S. Glaz
The end of something, like the end of our novels, means that while something has finished, something else is about to begin. What a beautiful thought. Ends shouldn't worry us. There are ends to jobs, ends to meals, ends to one POV, but with the end comes another beginning. And how beautiful is that?
For those of us in Michigan, it means the beginning of a wonderful time. Leaves turn color, and oh what spectacular colors we see! The temperature moderates. Seventies during the day, cool dry evenings at night. Great sleeping weather. It doesn't last long enough, but while it does, we all remember why we love Michigan. The beauty, the comfort, and for many of the guys and some gals--the hunting!
There's sweet misery as we tie up the loose ends to a novel. We sit back, take a deep breath, and realize, it's the end. What are your first steps to a new beginning? Do you take a breather, research? What gets you into the next "beginning"?
I wish you all a lovely Labor Day, and pray exciting new beginnings for all of you.
