Starting at the end…

I’m not good at endings.

Abrupt and quick, like pulling a band-aid off a healing wound.  That’s how I’ve ended friendships and quit jobs and “fired” doctors.  It’s easier that way, I tell myself, no looking back.

Finding a suitable conclusion has also been a problem with my writing.  From all-nighter assignments analyzing literature back in college to attempts at short stories and poetry to blog posts, the endings have always been difficult, like something out of reach I can’t quite grab.

Is it possible for me to say goodbye to bad endings?  We shall see, as that becomes the first thing I choose to tackle with those books full of writing exercises left undone.

(As far as saying goodbye to those other bad endings?  Never fear, I’m working on that, too.)
