The End is Nigh

party onI should be in a party mood, but I’m not.

I’m now writing the final chapter of Mountains of the Moon. The final battle is over, the aftermath is a memory. Now all I have left to write is the ending. Party On!!!

Good grief, this is difficult.

Do I just say “And they lived happily ever after?”

No–this is Neveyah…happily for a few years is about it…but they do get home, at least some of them, right? Soooo….

How freaking boring is that?  Now what?

Lets see…maybe a bit of a fight…no I’m trying to end this and that’s just asking for 10,000 more words…but what if they just happened to…no.

No. No. No.

Just END the bloody book!  They went home! They were happy!  End of book!  How the hell hard is that?

*Author makes rude noise at computer screen and takes a teensy coffee break. Characters languish in limbo for two hours.*

Okay, where was I? Right, the best part of the story is over, and there’s nothing left to talk about, but I have to gracefully end this ordeal. This sucks honking wongas….

Did you know that you can go out to YouTube and there is a channel with more than 80 videos of Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow?  Oohh… Stargazer…my favorite!

So, do they come home in coffins or  what? WHAAAT!!! Help me Obi Wan Kenobi! You’re my only hope!

Obi Wan.

lego-star-wars-the-game desk top wall paperOoohh, that reminds me! I just got an old version of Lego’s Star Wars for the PS3 for the grandkids.

Heh heh.

*Keys rapidly* “And they all lived happily ever after.”

Gotta go now.

Luuuuuke, I am your Grandma….

  1. What do you mean , they were happy? What sort of book are you writing? It almosts sounds as if you are trying to leave readers satisfied. This is not the modern way. Angst, more angst, followed by the sudden death of somebody pleasant always works.

    Loved this, Connie. The reluctance to leave your charcacters and the knowledge that you must. I still have 100,000 words before I get there, so good luck!


    • lol J.D. – I just want it to be over 😛

      I can’t wait to see what is rolling around in your head these days when it finally emerges in novel form!


      • That’s what my wife said on our honeymoon. She changed her tune when I stopped singing.

        My protagonist just said something I’m not clever enough to understand. Always a bad sign :O


  2. Yea!! Your put those poor characters through enough hell, Connie girl. A little happily ever after would be a relief for them. Have mercy! (Can’t wait to read the end!)


  3. Man, that sucks. I hate trying to come up with endings. They’re always so anticlimactic or forced. Oh well, maybe Obi-Wan can show up and build a Lego model to give you inspiration.


    • Irene and AveryThorne – it’s like having my fingernails pulled out, letting go of these people. But books are finite creatures, and a good ending is crucial! Writing it is hell.
