The final stretch
Well, here I am again, at the end of an unended story. I still must face the inevitable--completing the the thing. But where do I go from here?
I know how I want this story to end, I'm just not sure how to get there. I'll probably do what I always do and plunge ahead. Won't it be nice to finally write, "The End" at the the end. It is what keeps me going.
I'm excited. I can see the finish line, but at the moment it alludes me, kind of like a dream you are frantic to finish before you wake up. Then you wake up and try to go back to sleep to finish it. You can't, so you finish it in semi-conscience during the twilight before rational thought. But it never turns out as great as you know it would have in the dream.
Am I alone on this? I'd love to hear your thoughts about ending a story.
