For me, the hardest part of writing a fic is the ending. Ask my readers - the closer and closer to the end of a fic that I get, the longer and longer it takes for me to get an updated written. I'll admit that this is largely because I ascribe to the "By the Seat of My Flightsuit" writing style, and often my plot bunny or mental vision for the fic, doesn't extend all the way to the end of the story. However, sometimes even when I know how I want the story to end, I have extreme difficulty writing it. Some of the problems that I have are trying to be certain that I've tied things up enough that it gives my readers a sense of completion when I finish the story. I'm not a fan of sequels unless I'm reading, and not writing them. On the other hand, I don't like to tie my endings up too neatly. To me I see stories as a living thing. I might not be writing about it, but the characters lives will still be going on past the point in time where I stopped writing. Heck, that's the whole idea of fan fiction. But I digress. The other issue I have with endings is the final sentence, words, paragraph etc. How do I want to write that? What should I say? How do I complete the picture that I want to show? What's too much or too little? Does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, comments, or this girl's crazy to add?
