Heyo! Welcome to day 7 of the blog tour, the last official day of the tour. I’m so insanely thankful for every single one of the girls who participated in my blog tour and helped introduce this little book baby to the world. Today’s blog stop is Eliza’s blog where she interviewed me and I had a whole lot of fun!! Be sure to check it out!
And today, I want to talk about The End. We see it at the end of almost every book, and we kind of don’t give it a second thought. That was a good story, or a story you didn’t enjoy all that much. Either way, it’s over.
What are the characters doing now in life? Does the story have an epilogue to give you a glimpse into the future? How do you think the character has changed or grown since the beginning of the story and how does that affect their lives from here on out? Sometimes in stories, I like for it to be a sort of up-to-the-reader ending. Say its a dystopian story, and the characters are traveling and struggling to survive, and at the end of the book they’ve learned things about their friends, they’ve faced hardship, and they may not yet be at a safe house, but you as the reader are given an implication that no matter what happens, the characters will stay loyal to each other. So there’s not a complete ending, but you get to ultimately let your mind settle on a satisfactory ending.
Dewdrops and Butterflies reaches a pretty satisfactory ending I think, and there is an epilogue. Of course in yesterday’s post you saw that Playgrounds and Black Markers is sort of a four-years-forward story. It’s something I chose to play with, and I’m happy with the way the two books will work together and the way they will also work separately just as fine.
What about you? What is your The End? Your life is your story, and you may have a major life event, a painful experience, a trama, or even just a stage of life that you’ve just gone through. As much as this is The End for that part of your life, there is so much left to be learned and seen in the future!
God has a beautiful plan laid out for your life, and ultimately if you surrender to Him, He will give you more than you can possibly dream or imagine. Every experience you go through, He has led and guided you and He will continue to do so and teach you and grow you through it.
As much as we are tempted to say The End to parts of our lives, it’s good to look back sometimes and remember what we learned from those particular areas! It can be painful and it can be hard, but it’s good to remind ourselves that we’ve grown, and it helps also to realize that you did come out ok. You’re here, you’re better, and you’re going to be just fine.
