That is something I’ve learned both in the course of life and being a writer. Nothing really ends.
Oh, you can write The End to a story, but it doesn’t really. Those characters stay with you and you get to come back to them again in revisions or edits, in reader comments and reviews and sometimes even in another story where you’ve picked up a secondary character to transform into hero or heroine. Nothing really ends.
In life, same thing. When things seem like they are coming to a close or the end, they will always come back to you at just the right moments. Loved ones live on in memories, pictures and children. Through remembered words of a wisdoms, songs, sights or smells. Nothing really ends.
Even jobs. From each one you take experiences or lessons that help in the next one. You find out things you are good at or not so good at, the type of people you enjoy working with and take from all of them a little something for the future. Nothing really ends.
So even though Mamawriters is coming to an end….the valuable friendships, stories and knowledge we’ve gained from each other will stay with us always….because nothing really ends
