I always like to write my ending first…and by that, I mean my main ending. My books contain at least three different stories which means…yep three different endings argh! However, the main character ending is what I focus on. I’m currently writing the third book in the Braille Club Series and the first thing I wrote was the bones of the main ending, so far so good. The ending in my third book is by far the most explosive and difficult to write. I must make it authentic, emotional and gripping and that takes a lot out of me. I need to imagine what my characters will be thinking and feeling. This emotional roller coaster I leave to the very end after I close out my other two storylines.
I’ve finished the second ending, now under revision and I’m about to complete my third ending but somehow I can’t seem to nail it down. I wonder if it is my subconscious playing tricks…behave.
In fact, I’ve never actually written The End because my brain is already conjuring up the opening chapter in my next book…almost like I cannot let the story go. I’ve learned when I stall to switch my imagination to the next book in my series. My enthusiasm for new characters adds a new perspective. So I might not finish ending number three today but my time is never wasted. I know when it feels right, I’ll get it done.
