IWSG: March 2022 - Keeping your Ducks in a Row
The optional questions for March are: Have you ever been conflicted about writing a story or adding a scene to a story? How did you decide to write it or not?
I will not be using the monthly question. However, speaking of scenes…
I’m currently writing a new story for a group reading. The fun is that the short story will be read in four parts. The difficult part is that the ending needs to jive with the beginning once I’ve read it to the group. Currently, I have three endings and that could be a problem. In all three endings someone dies. Who did it? I think I know, but maybe not. My goal is to set up Part One to work with all three endings.
I feel for all of the serial writers out there. You have to keep your ducks in a row or someone will call you out.
How about you? Do you ever change your mind about the ending of a story you’re writing? Do you ever finish a book or short story and think you could have written a better ending?
