I finished my 50,000 words–and a little bit over–last night. Late last night. There were a few times when I had to take a break and puzzle out what was coming next. Sometimes I was only a few scenes ahead, and as I approached the end I didn’t have a clue as to what my ending would be! It is open-ended actually, but I’ve ended a few stories that way; sometimes the story wants a sequel, but it’s a satisfying ending and not a cliffhanger.
