Endings. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched a movie or read a book (this especially goes for books since I put a lot of energy into reading them–I’m a slow reader) and the ending is a real let-down.
I get so mad. And most of the time it doesn’t feel like it was just an ending where I’m left thinking, “Oh, I wish this would have happened instead.” No, it feels like the author or writers were like “Eh, I’m bored of this…and…The End.”
A book can be so good and then it just drops off…
And it seems like this has been happening A LOT lately with the books I’ve been reading. Is it just bad luck? Maybe.
But they’ve taught me a lesson. I need to put a lot of effort into my endings or it will sour the entire feel of the book.
I want people to finish my book and be laughing, crying, grossed out, happy, but never let down.
