How to End a Short Story

Travel Writing

The best - meaning worst - way to end a short story is to just have everyone die. If the main characters to a story are gone, then their can be no more story. It is all over.

I watched a movie last night called Fuera del Cielo, and it was decent. Well, it was decent up until the end when the protagonist - for some unknown reason - just threw himself off of a bridge.

"The main character is dead, I suppose now it is time to end the movie!"

The old Somerset Maugham catechism: How do you end a story? Kill the characters!

Just saw your website. Nice work man. Its a breath of fresh air. So you're headed to East Europe? Hope you avoid the lonely planetaros and find some other vagabonds and locals. Pound some vodka shots for all us wage slaves stuck at home.
