A Sequel for Mr. Edwards
by T. Delaplain

It had been Mr. Edwards idea to help Renee write “his” sequel from the quant château in Provence. In fact the sequel had been entirely his idea. The promise had been extorted from her during a fierce re-write; the result of a tussle over the laptop and a tumble on the divan. Mr. Edwards, a minor character in her first novel had definitely become a distraction in the sequel. Her hand hestitated over the delete button.

“No Mr. Edwards, I do not see you as a seductive rogue, perhaps a stable lad in chapter 13? Never forget, Sir. Your place is on the page.”

Mr. Edwards can’t seem to stay where he is written or stay out of my flash fiction. A distraction indeed! If you’re curious about this literary terrorist you could read any of these flashes.

  1. I’m still not sure who will win the tussle. Characters can be very tenacious

  2. Oh mercy, that dangerous delete button. Let’s hope Mr. Edwards stays on the page or he may just get a delete click. : ) Looks like he’s enjoying the limelight on FF.

  3. I agree with Neil. Renee might hit delete today, but he’ll be back tomorrow. Enjoyed this tale of insistent character.

    Love that you bring Mr. Edwards to life, sounds like he has a will of his own.

  6. I think Mr Edwards will return… these rogues will never stay between the papers… they prefer the bedsheets.

  8. Dear Tracey,

    Renee should surrender. Mr. Edwards has a story to tell I think.

    Did I tell you that Dr. Derevenko started out as a side mention in Please Say Kaddish for Me? He didn’t see it that way and the next two books tell his story. Never fight the muse. The force is too strong within her.

  11. I love his tenaciousness! Must agree with Rochelle… if you can’t fight him, expand him!
    These are great, Tracey…


  12. I know his type. Mr Edwards wants his own book. Maybe something along the lines of James Edward Bond.
