The end of the book is hardest for me. I never want to end too abruptly. I hate it when I read books and then, at the end, I’m left hanging. Cliffhangers are fine because I know another book is out there or coming. But I really try to clean up whatever loose ends I can and make the ending satisfying. That’s hard – often at the end of a book even I am ready to move on and I need to remind myself to close it out rather than just end it.
