Writing Excuses 6.30: Help! I Can’t End My Book‪!‬ Archive Seasons 1-6 – Writing Excuses

    • Books

Merry Christmas! Here's the last episode of Writing Excuses Season 6! We decided to end the season with a discussion of endings. Specifically, we answer cries for help that we've gotten. The cries answered include:



* I'm 90% done and I've painted myself into a corner! How do I end this book without resorting to deus ex machina?

* The best part of this book was 75% of the way through! I need the highlight to be at the END!

* My outline isn't working here at the end! How do I know when to abandon it?

* Help! I want both a satisfying ending and room for a sequel! (hint: we use an object lesson here...)
