Writing Excuses 6.30: Help! I Can’t End My Book! » Writing Excuses
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…)
