Our writing can become a road going nowhere, leading us and our readers down rabbit trails with no final destination. We reach the end of our book and our characters are still in limbo. If we don't tie up the loose ends, the reader walks away thinking, "I wonder what happened to Mrs. Quigley?"
I don't know about you, but I like a satisfying ending. Even if it's a series, I want a book to bring the immediate problem to closure.
Do you like unfinished storylines? Does it thrill your imagination to pick up the threads and invent your own ending? What are your thoughts?
