Stop by pretty please!Before I talk about endings, I wanted to point out that yesterday I was over on SR Johannes' blog, talking about the New Adult genre, marketing, and all kinds of fun stuff.
So, yesterday, I submitted my revised ending for book 2, formally known as The Chemistry of Fate, and changed things up pretty dramatically. Previously I'd left things hanging for one of my main characters (I'll expound more on this once the book actually comes out). Now, I've wrapped things up more for both MC's, and only left the fate of the bad guy hanging (he's got a role to play in book 3--spoilers!). I'm not upset about this at all, and it's totally understandable why I had to make things change, but it does make me think a little about endings in general.
For me, the perfect ending is the one in the movie Inception. I loved that! I love how there are all kinds of hints throughout the movie and last scene that tiptoe around what could have happened. Ah, it's just perfection! (And not that my previous ending was anywhere near that epic, but it was what I had in mind when I wrote it.)
I brought this up on facebook yesterday and thought I'd mention it here, too. What kinds of endings do you like and why? Are you all about the HEA (happily ever after) endings? Or do you like the kind where things are left a little unsettled?
(And you may want to follow me on facebook--I tend to do random little giveaways over there that you might be interested in!)
