The End

Everyone says that the middle of the novel is the toughest. I discovered that for me it was another part.

The End.

Once I got the story rolling I could just go on forever. The characters don't want to stop. They take the wheel and roll.

Sticking to the story outline I got to the end of the story but how and where to tie it off?

In this case it is very important because going in the reader knows there will be a sequel. It has to end at a logical story point. But it also has to end in such a way that the reader WANTS to return for the sequel.

--It was a tough job. I hope I managed it.

  1. That's funny you should mention that. For my story, I was so confused about how to end it, but then about eight tenths of the way through, the ending became perfectly clear. I wrote the end and then worked my way backwards until the two parts met!
