The downside of writing to explore is that I don't really have an ending when I start. I'm trusting that the story will lead me to an ending.
Sometimes it does--but sometimes it doesn't.
This is the second Tale of the Thirteenth Principality that I've gotten more then 2/3rds of the way into the story and then got stumped.
With "The Wyvern Riders," I was distracted by the necessity to do something else, and I figured I'd just come back to it. My plan is to read the story from the beginning and see if an ending reveals itself.
With "Moregone," I'm going to take a couple of days to mull it over and hope a killer ending comes to me.
I could write an ending, there is no doubt. But I sort of want it to be inspired, so I'm willing to take the chance to wait for that to happen.
