Fairytales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. ~ G.K. Chesterton
I am quaking in my boots at the thought of writing a book synopsis. Not that I didn’t start before this – I did – but to write a tale of two star crossed lovers… well, even *I* hate a bad ending. Do they deserve a bad ending? Perhaps not, but that’s what some people get.
And to what purpose? ::shrugs:: Sometimes I wonder.
Who wants to read a book like that? There’s enough of that crap in the world! Fantasy is to escape, not be faced with the world’s problems.
However, I realize that’s a coward’s excuse for not attempting it at all. And not to say they HAVE to have that ending… but I can’t imagine another.
I just feel stupid putting all my short stories together in chronological order. Does my overall story even make sense?
I guess I’m afraid of rejection and to be told it doesn’t. But that kind of stupid attitude gets one no where…
So I will quit procrastinating and flesh it out. It was always the ending that I was afraid of, anyway.
::takes a deep breath:: …time to get back to it, then…
