Several of my writer friends were kind enough to look over the product of last week’s writing binge. It looks like I addressed a goodly chunk of the issues that they had with the book’s ending. It had felt abrupt; there were too many questions unanswered. I’m definitely sensitive to that charge since it was one of the complaints about my YA mystery SUSPECT. But perhaps the greatest challenge was figuring out how to resolve a tension between what I thought my main character wanted at the end of the story and what a goodly percentage of my critique partners wanted for her. I did manage to come up with a set of circumstances that worked for her, me, and the readers.
