Free Form Friday

I’ve talked about openings frequently here, but what about endings? The last novel I finished I felt like I was chasing after something great to wrap it up with. But it never materialized. I finished it properly, but it wasn’t with a bang.

How do you like to finish your stories? Do you wrap them up nice and tidy? Do you leave loose ends? Do you finish short stories differently than novels?

Tell me how you work out the final paragraphs of your stories. I’ll post comments along with my own thoughts on Sunday or Monday. Jump in even if you haven’t commented before. We’re all friendly here!
