June #IWSG: Is the ending the end or just the beginning?

 


        First Wed of Every Month


                                          

The awesome co-hosts for the June 1 posting of the IWSG are SE White, Cathrina Constantine, Natalie Aguire, Joylene Nowell Butler, and Jacqui Murray!

Struggling with something to say
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience, or a story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

Remember, the question is optional!

June 1 question - When the going gets tough writing the story, how do you keep yourself writing to the end? If have not started the writing yet, why do you think that is and what do you think could help you find your groove and start?


"Ends are not bad things, they just mean something else is about to begin." 

Not sure who wrote that, but I love that quote.

I love writing endings. But does a story truly ever end? Even in the great novels and movies and tv series, there's always room for more story. Who doesn't love an epic finale? With a loophole? That leads to another plot line? And another book or movie? ME!!  

Just returned from an epic Bucket List trip to Salem, Massachusetts. Best week ever! The lives of those accused did not end well, but they have since been exonerated. Loved all the historic sights including the Hocus Pocus filming locations. The cool weather with no humidity made this visitor from the humid Midwest extremely content.

                            The Ropes Mansion-Allison's House from Hocus Pocus

What are your plans for the summer? Any writing goals? Any Bucket List trips? I plan to finish my latest novel!

  3. One thing ends, another begins.

    The East Coast is heating up now so be grateful you missed the humidity.

  5. Fun trip!

    If the story is good, I'm always up for more, though so long as I get some closure in whatever installment I'm in!

  7. I would love to visit Salem. That must have been fun. The houses are fabulous. I did visit the Lucy Montgomery museums twice in P.E.I.. Lucy wrote Anne of Green Gables. I visited her grandparents home and saw where she lived for most of her childhood. I saw the village in the tv series. It was a wonderful trip.
