Today at Writers Helping Writers, I’m focusing on the resolution, or the scenes following a story’s climax. But I’m not offering tips on how to write a resolution. Rather, I’m sharing insights on recognizing whether your story needs one at all. Because as useful as resolutions can be for resolving subplots, answering questions, and providing other closure before the final page, they might not always be necessary.
So what questions should we ask ourselves to determine whether a resolution might strengthen a story? And, which timeless is a fantastic example of a resolution-less novel? All of that is covered in my latest Resident Writing Coach post.
By the way, this Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the United States. Since I’ll be busy and many readers likely will be as well, I’m taking a mini blogging holiday for the rest of the week. Happy Thanksgiving, and I’ll see you again next Tuesday!
