Fellow writers, I have a question for you. When you start nearing the end of a work in progress, do you ever feel like there’s absolutely NO WAY you’re going to be able to stretch the ending out enough so that it:
A) Doesn’t end abruptly
B) Meets a good word count
I always feel this way and struggle to write a wordy, natural ending. When I met the lovely Lisa McMann, we had a nice conversation about how we both write shorter works and while most authors have to cut things out, we’re always having to add things. Finding out that an author I loved shares the same “problem” as I do made me feel better, but I wish I didn’t feel like it takes me forever to reach an ending.
For all of you who write lengthy, beautiful manuscripts, I envy you.
A lot. 🙂
