Does Every Story Need a Happy Ending? – http://wp.me/p4SsOO-mFx

I totally agree that they should not all have happy endings. It’s an unrealistic expectation that all stories should end well. I also find as I get older that I’m a happy for a story not to conclude, for there not to be answers to questions raised and to not even always make sense. I’m quite happy to dip in and out of a created world and to even see the main character die or end up alone etc. It doesn’t always leave you feeling happy about it when you realise the ending is a sad one and, having written a couple of books myself I have to say I really struggled with inflicting this on one of my main characters, but it does sometimes work much better for the reader/viewer.
By the way, I really enjoyed stranger than fiction 🙂
I felt it would be inhumane to write stories with nothing but happy endings since like you say its unrealistic to do so. It would have certainly been a mindless approach, thanks for leaving your detailed thoughts ✌😁
