Until next time!

22 Jul

It strikes me that, for me, the sign of a good story is when I am not happy to have made it to the last page of a good sized novel, but when I am sad to turn over the back cover.

I admit that it has taken me probably too long to read the book that I just finished (Gaiman’s Anansi Boys), but I just finished it and I am quite cheerily melancholy.  I find I feel that say-so-long-to-a-good-friend sadness at the conclusion of most of Gaiman’s books, though, so I’m not terribly shocked this evening.

I don’t really have much to say other than that.  I just hope that, someday, I inspire that same feeling in others with writing.  (Of course, I would have to write to inspire that.)

    Yeah I hate it when I come to the end of one of your blog posts. 😦
