Now that you have a sense of where your character is going, you’re probably starting to get a sense of how you want to end this thing.
Today I want to give you the confidence to know that you can make that turn and begin to put an ending on this story!
The story begins to end when something finally changes for your character. Maybe it’s internal, maybe it’s forced on them by an external event, but the final action they take in the story answers the ‘will they or won’t they’ achieve their desire.
(If you’re getting fancy it can answer the question of whether or not their desire is actually the same as what they need, but that’s a more advanced task!)
Remember: we’re thinking about the events that show us how the character ultimately deals with whatever they’ve faced during this story. It will probably tell us something about how they have changed (or refused to).
Don’t worry about how you put a bow on the ending yet. We’ll talk about that on a future day. Just think about what might happen, or at the very least, how you want your reader to feel as they exit the story.
(This emotional part is useful to write down now, because it can get lost as you wrestle with the actual writing part. Keep it handy, as a sign post, for when you’re writing this part!)
Leave a comment telling us how today’s task went. Did you have a sense of hw your character will have changed by the end? Do you know how you want your readers to feel?
