Writing and Other Afflictions

"If it was easy, everyone would do it." –Jimmy Dugan, "A League of Their Own"

The Right Ending

What do you do when you have a bunch of equally valid endings for your story that all say different things? You have to figure out which one says the thing you want to say, and if you don’t know what you want to say then you have to figure that out too. It sounds simple, but right now I’m facing that dilemma. Endings are really important to me and so I want to make sure I nail this one, but it’s hard when my First Reader says “they’re both good.” :) It’s basically the difference between “character learns a lesson” and “character doesn’t learn a lesson,” and honestly I see the story working either way.

Well. Just another one of those things that must be figured out, y’know?
