Natasha  (ar y ffin) (Natasha_ar_y_ffin) I need some advice on the ending. There's these two rival groups in my story and they get into a battle. Well, the main character gets thrown over a cliff and his wife thinks he's dead. That's the third-to-last chapter of the book. The second to last chapter is the group going back home. At the end of the last chapter of the book, should the main character come back or should I just have the wife go on thinking he's dead, and she gets a new husband?

That's so my story! (She thinks someone is dead and almost marries someone else...) But go ahead and do it! That'd be awesome!

Endings are hard, to state the obvious. I tend to like the bittersweet or tragic ones more, but I always feel like I owe my characters a happy ending after what I put them through. *guilty laugh*

I never reach endings, so I'm not sure how I like to end my stories. Most likely chance of me killing off everybody but the main character and then the main character commits suicide...

Hehe at the end of my NaNo last year, my main character died. And it was in first person.

Being a mod is over rated.

I used to desperately want to be a mod in this group, but now I really don't care. Haha.

You'd be a good mod though.


Maria [the clockwork creeps on useless lives] (mariachhile) | 8772 comments Mod
I don't really care... I just asked somebody because there were only like 2 or 3 active mods in this group and they said yes.


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Why thank you, Lav.
