Tell readers the story is over

Like us novelists, readers want validation.





We want others to confirm our genius.





Readers just want you to confirm that the story is over.

The validation readers need comes at the end of your story. It’s the scene or scenes following the climax, after the main plot closes.





You must provide a clear signal that the story is over. For good or ill, the adventure is done.

“Breyona didn’t have to force a laugh. “Fellowship? Who do you think you are? Freedo the hobbit?”
“It’s Frodo,” he said over his shoulder. “And if I was a character from L.O.T.R., I’d obviously by Strider.” Shaking his head, he continued down the trail, mumbling obscenities.
“What is L.O.T.R.?” Shiv asked. “Who is this Freedo?”
Both questions brought exasperated sighs from Bronson. “It stands for Lord of the Rings. Don’t you ever see any movies?”
“Weren’t they books before they were movies?” Em asked.
“They wrote them after,” Bronson said.
Breyona winked at Danny. “That Freedo was hot,” she said loud enough for Bronson to hear. “Even with those dumb-ass furry feet, he’s my kind of cute.”
Bronson threw his hands up. “Frodo. It’s Frodo. And he’s not hot!”

“Is it nice, my preciousss? Is it juicy? Is it scrumptiously crunchable?”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again

“But you have so much in common. You're both from strange little backwater planets. You both have odd powers. You're male and she's female. What more do you need? Believe me, buddy, if I were you, I'd go right up there and ask her if she wants to ride on my rancor.”
Dave Wolverton, The Courtship of Princess Leia

“an artist when you say you are. And you’re a good artist when you make somebody else experience or feel something deep or unexpected.”
Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help

“The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.”
Robert Jordan
