Dramatic Events and Endings: Meeting Reader’s Expectations
(part of the Everything Your Need to Write a Beautiful Story series)
You have written for pages toward your dramatic event and/or your ending. Now here it is. Does it meet the reader’s expectation or does it fall flat?
In this workshop we will examine the do’s and don’ts of high events and look at several different ways to write them. We will also learn the different types of endings and consider which may be right for your story.
- Weaving the Dramatic & the Subtle
- Two Mistakes with High Events
- Endings can Culminate or Imply Continuation
- Ending Literal or From Afar?
Make sure you keep the promises you have made to the reader. Don’t let your dramatic event or ending disappoint them.
