I just finished my second novel, at a little more than 90K, which was my goal. Now I'm relieved and also a little sad, because this means I won't spend as much time with my characters for a while. I have to let this story rest before even thinking about the next revision, because right now I don't know what more I can do to it. And I'm going to miss these guys, they've become a part of my life, almost like real life friends, I know them so well and I've shared their life what feels like forever. How do you guys feel when finishing a story? Does somebody else miss their characters like I do?
