When the end meets the beginning of your children's story...

Imagine you’ve worked for months to hone your perfect children’s story. You’ve paid attention to important details. You’ve made sure that your main character has learned important lessons during her journey. The opening of your story has action to hold the interest of your readers. But what can you do about the ending?
You don’t want to tell your readers everything, but you want them to have a hopeful feeling when they finish your book.
You might prefer to end your story “organically.” What does that mean?
The word “organic” brings vegetables and fruits to mind, doesn’t it? But in writing, “organic” means that you create a natural ending for your story. Sometimes you may choose to refer back to the beginning of the story and have the ending tied to that.

  1. Great tip, Deanie. I tend to struggle with the ending. Somehow, I always end up with unanswered questions.

  2. Thank you, Murees. I know some people write the ending first, but I haven't really tried that. I hope these little hints help. All the best to you.
