~The World~ There is a place where written characters are abandoned. These are characters that have been scrapped by their authors/creators. They have no story in which they belong and hence have no purpose or value. This place is located between Imagination and Inspiration. It is called The Block. The denizens, called Blots, slowly melt back into ink blots and their skin becomes parchment scraps. When they are all gone, they are considered to have returned to the Well (inkwell).
oh gosh can I just say that this universe is my favorite out of all of yours? The idea is so depressing and brilliant! For your writing contest, I was really conflicted over writing for these characters or your circus ones!
