It’s what you’ve all been waiting for! Only…I can’t bear to post it.
Most of you know that I finished Esmeralda (on paper; it’s allmosssttt all typed up)! And it only took me 100 days which was pretty cool. But guess what!?!?!
I hate my ending. It’s not bad in and of itself, but let’s just say that it builds up to something far grander and then….kaput. The excitement just dies. It’s lame. I hate it. When I wrote the ending to Betrayal, which I am now editing because it has so very many flaws, I got butterflies at the end. (Okay, maybe I’m not supposed to admit that, because many of you have read it too… And maybe you hated the ending.)
The only part I like is that in re-reading it, I sense an unconsciously written nod to Charlotte Brontë in there. Otherwise…oh, I can’t even think of it without cringing.
So I have a proposition: how about I type it up and before I post it I send it to anyone who’s interested? Then y’all can tell me WHAT IN THE WORLD TO DO ABOUT MY ENDING! I mean it- I need help. Just facebook, tweet, figment-wall-post or email me with your email address and as soon as I get it typed up I’ll send it to you. 🙂
And I mean it- please take me up on this. I need the advice. And this means if you don’t want to read my whole dumb ending but you still have ideas for how it could go, I want that input as well! Please. 🙂
