At Smack Dab in the Middle Blog during September in honor of summer's end, we're writing on the theme of endings. My take on this is being brave enough to not finish. Here is an excerpt:

Oh, a happy ending, a promising ending, or even a sad but satisfying ending. As a writer it’s one of the most important parts of my job – ending well is the payoff for staying with a story. Yet I have many stories that I've begun, but that are still without endings (or proper endings) because I’ve abandoned them. The reasons for not finishing vary, but most common are that they weren't super ideas to begin with, or something else more interesting has captured my attention.
