My Beloved Characters,

You have caused me so many problems. You have made me miss homework assignments, lose sleep, forget too many things, and scream in frustration. It is your fault I miss important directions, I ignore friends and family, and the hours seem to go by too fast for me to get things done.

You have caused countless complications, but am I going to do what normal people would do? Am I going to drop you because you are a bad influence? Am I going to shove you away, and do all I can to keep you out of my life?


I am going to keep giving you my time. I am going to continue to lose sleep over you, make room in my mind for you where important information should be kept, and I will keep on devoting my entire life to you. I will pick you over school work, family, and friends any day of the week.

Why would I give you anything and everything? Because I am a writer. I am a writer, and you are my creations. You are made of my blood, sweat, and tears. You are my greatest achievements, and despite the hardships you have caused me, I love all of you.

When the real world is mean, I don't let it affect me because I know I will always have you. You will be there to keep me company when I am lonely, cheer me up when I am sad, and entertain me when I am bored. With all of the hard work I put into keeping you alive, you repay me with your presence whenever I need it.

While other people fight to be popular and successful, I know that I don't need to fight. I don't need to be popular because you're there with me. I don't need to fight to be successful because by creating you, and keeping you alive on the pages of a book, I already have succeeded. I don't need to fight for those things so many others fight for because I am a writer. And as a writer, I will never be without my characters.
