Hi, everyone! It's Princess Vicki and I want to chat about THE END. You just finished the book, close it, and sometimes, sigh. The last line sets the tone for how the book ends, a resolution, and is a counterpoint to the opening line which sets the story in motion.
Sometimes, there are lines that stay with us forever. For example:
“Tomorrow is another day.” From Gone With the Wind
“Thank you, God, she thought. Thank you.” From A Knight in Shining Armor (When I reached the end of this one, I sat for about a minute with the book in my hands, then started it again instantly.)
When I finish a story or book, I think a lot about the last line. I have been accused of writing a cliffhanger and maybe so.
