I'm back! I've officially resurfaced after my month-long disappearance from the blogosphere.
Alex: I owe you an apology. I know I was supposed to participate in the blogfest on Monday, but alas, life happened. And by life I mean school and homework. Please forgive me for that.
So, this month's insecurity is endings. Specifically, what makes a good ending? I'm taking a Creative Nonfiction class in school this semester, and I always struggle with endings. I can't seem to tie it up right, so to speak. I have a story going and it's all neat and tidy, and then I get to the ending. The ending usually winds up being short, abrupt, and leaving the reader asking, "So what? Why should I care?". I always feel like MORE is better, when in reality, it's not. Sometimes the opposite is true- LESS is more!
How about you? How do you 'tie up the ends' in a story?Any tips?
