NaPoWriMo 2016 – Day 8

Cinquain # 8:  Will The Real Author Please Stand Up

Was his name.
Jane Austen gave him fame.
But to Elizabeth she gave
His heart.

We use our pow’r.
To create whom we wish,
Intending to control their lives
And loves.

But wait.
My characters
Sometimes will take control.
They’ll change midstream and force their will
On me.

And so,
At story’s end,
Although I get the praise,
I know the work’s success is due
To them.

  1. Wonder if those characters could come over here and reside in my keyboard. Then they could help me write when my mind go blank. Notice I didn’t say when my mind goes. 🙂

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
