'Write with...' - Week 20: Endings

We all know what it feels like to come to the end of a book we have really enjoyed. It is so hard to end some books in a satisfying way after pages and pages of tension and conflict and drama and all sorts but it is vital that we do this. We can all remember books that have left us a little deflated. Or worse, that have ended in an anti-climatic way. So it is important that we really focus on the end of the book and make sure we leave with a BANG, that the ending has impact. That is the topic of this week's vlog. I hope you can offer up some tips for ending a book successfully,
