It's getting really close to the end of my story and I'm sailing through. The ending is paramount to the success of the entire story so it is important to make sure it's going where it needs to go. For instance, tying up all loose ends is one thing that's necessary. Then you've got to go for the resolution to the external problem. I finished external problem. I'm now drawing up in my mind the blackest moment. I say that because I realize that in this book, there was one black moment already which put my heroine on guard and made her wary of the hero. But they are on even ground now and now I'm writing that gut-wrenching moment in the story and the scenes that make my hero realize what's truly at stake.
I figure I have one more chapter to go but it's probably going to be the hardest chapter to write. But I always enjoy writing the ending. True to my romantic nature, I want to see my hero/heroine happy again. Isn't that fun? We live and breathe these characters for months and struggle with them. And at the end of the book, it's time to bring them together. Who's a sucker for a good ending? Anyone out there read the ending first? I have one friend who does that and I constantly wonder why? What are your feelings when a book you love, ends?
