Truest Characters Beyond the Book

Someone asked me, “Do you ever dream about where your characters are now? Who they’ve become and how they continue to grow?”

Yes. 

Mostly because I think that one day I’d like to return to Green Lake to catch up with the gang, so I always have a little part of me that is thinking about what that story would entail and would happen to them in the interim. I have a vague idea of what happens to West, Silas, Elliot, and Whit in the years after Truest ends.

Am I going to tell you those ideas?

Sorry. No. Not yet.

I leave you with this poem.

But bottom line: assume the Green Lake kids are happy unless I write another book about them someday (which would necessitate conflict, of course).

  1. “assume the Green Lake kids are happy unless I write another book about them someday” Would this mean that, from your characters’ perspectives, you writing a sequel would literally be the worst thing that could happen to them?
