Thoughts About Endings and Beginnings
Its always a difficult trick for me to finally put down my pen (metaphorically) and have the congratulatory drink and cigarette (also metaphorical!) when working a writing project and reaching those words The End. Ive asked other writers, and they tend to have a pat answer to my question. Oh, yeah, it just ends, they tell me, or they have had it outlined since the start and so its just a small matter of connecting the verbal dots. I dont believe them, of course. Ending is always a bitch.
