Happy Endings

YAY weekend!

So Sarah & Derrick's happy ending is finally available... sorry that took me so long. It was a relief to finish it out and feel good about it... I always have more trouble writing endings than I do writing beginnings and middles.  There's a lot more pressure on the end of a story, when it comes right down to it. Even endings where there aren't any major choices to be made.

Hopefully people are too disappointed that I let Vincent get away with his crimes.  I know that it leaves part of the story open ended, but I always hate it when everything is wrapped up in a tidy little bundle in an epilogue.  Sometimes the bad guy gets away.  Actually, a lot of the time the bad guy gets away, and I think more fiction should reflect that.  One of the things that I loved about Sarah was that she truly didn't care - she had everything else she wanted. Her restaurant, Derrick, her friends, stability... Vincent taking money made her angry but it's not like she couldn't move on with her life anyway.  She focused on the important things rather than only being capable of being happy if every single detail worked out neatly.  That's the kind of thing I like =)

I'm going to be away this weekend, celebrating my birthday which is next week. Probably going to be away next weekend too. Still celebrating. ;) So there's going to be a weekend break for the blog and then I'll have more on Monday...

Hoping to submit the next chapter of Consequences this evening before my celebrations officially start.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
