INSECURE WRITER'S SUPPORT GROUP
I read a book last night. Took me four hours and when I finished I was pissed. It ended in a cliffhanger. There was a beginning, middle, but no end! Why? It's a trilogy, but that doesn't give the author the right not to tell a full story, or does it?
I've read too many of these recently, decent books, but I resented the ending or lack of one. I can't write a review with such a bad taste in my mouth. Is this a new trend? Did I miss something along the way, because I was taught that a book, a story no matter the length, should have a beginning, middle, and an ending? Most flash fiction challenges expect the basics. Sorry, a little off script, but this really does rile me!
Anyway, that's not really an insecurity, more of a pet peeve, but as far as insecurities go – this month I have them all! Waiting on word from the publisher, the editor, and beta readers is enough to drive a person to drink! Okay, now I feel better – not really, but it sounds good! Right?
What do you think about not telling a full story in a book of over 350 pages, is it fair to the readers? Is it the new way of doing things? How do you deal with the waiting once you let your baby, I mean book go, and no, drinking is not an option?!
