Merry Christmas! Here’s the last episode of Writing Excuses Season 6! We decided to end the season with a discussion of endings. Specifically, we answer cries for help that we’ve gotten. The cries answered include:
- I’m 90% done and I’ve painted myself into a corner! How do I end this book without resorting to deus ex machina?
- The best part of this book was 75% of the way through! I need the highlight to be at the END!
- My outline isn’t working here at the end! How do I know when to abandon it?
- Help! I want both a satisfying ending and room for a sequel! (hint: we use an object lesson here…)
Writing Prompt: Writing Prompt: Dan needs a hamburger. What's stopping him? And what is he going to end up with instead of a hamburger? (Hint: it should be more satisfying than the end he had in mind at the beginning...)
