Genre: Novel Time Travel
A Novel Romance
by Tracey Delaplain

Mr. Edwards, having recently jumped to the conclusion that life outside of his novel would be more rewarding than living within its confines, had miscalculated the consequences of empty pockets and limited word resources in this new century. Putting himself at considerable risk of literary derision, he re-entered his birth novel at a new location.

The boarding house in chapter 13, which was owned by the voluptuous Widow Fanny, was a perfect venue for a novel romance. Having interrupted the word flow, Mr. Edwards felt certain that the author would see the merits of re-writing the dusty old novel to include the 10,000 word life that Mr. Edwards rightfully deserved.

  1. Dear Tracey,

    This is not only imaginative, inventive and clever, it’s also mind-boggling. Well done.



    PS It’s ‘Wisoff’ no ‘e’ although I had a teacher in junior high who referred to me as Wise-off.

  6. I remember Mr. Edwards and it’s great to read about him again. Great story, if only we could wander through the pages of our books at will.

    Hilarious and spaced out.

  9. I agree, 10,000 words is not too much to ask.

  12. Really different and imaginative, Tracey. He deserves that 10,000 word count at the very least. And, hopefully, he’ll get the girl, too. Well done.

  13. Loved Mr Edwards the first time around – lovely to see him back. I am trying to think of a work where the characters rebel (plenty where the author intrudes) but I can’t. Lots of great potential here Tracey!

  15. Reminds me a bit of the Thursday Next books – book characters moving through time and through other books. Very clever.

  17. Wonderfully quirky and most entertaining. I’m sure the plot can only be enhanced by Mr Edwards little jumps. It’ll keep readers on their toes.

  18. I’d forgotten about Mr Edwards – nice to see him again, starring in yet another century of words. 10,000 words is a quite modest goal I would have thought – a long short story? Novella? I wish him well.

    Great work, the concept of the character living within the book and aware of the words etc is very creative.

  19. What an inspired idea…so creative to have a character in a story be able to leave the confines of the book and explore elsewhere…genius! And delightful too.
