currently...and don't mind me venting to you...I AM SICK TO DEATH OF BEGINNINGS. and don't let me fool you. it has EVERYTHING to do with the fact that i have rewritten my beginning (not edited, not revised, BUT completely rewritten, chopped, changed, started over) TEN times since July and this is in addition to countless edits and revisions. SOOOOOO. i DON'T want to hear your first line. your first 250. your first 5.
okay. it's not that i don't want to EVER. just not today.
today i want to know how it all ends. i want to revel in the fact that you are amazing.
that you are part of the 10% of all people who have written, completed, finished, ceased, terminated, concluded, drawn to a close, ended, stopped, and even finalized A NOVEL. (manuscript, whatever)
for those of you who have spent countless hours on your beginning, like me, let's take a day to rejoice in the finales of our stories. share your novel's parting words with me.
post your final sentence in my comments.
or...even your final 250.
instead of worrying, is there a HOOK? let's for once wonder if there is contentment, finality, wonder, something to leave the reader pondering, a closing that leaves us sighing, "ahhhh". inspiration. romance.
yes, how do YOU end your novel?
