I remembered one of the reasons why I started writing. I watched TV shows and movies that had horrible endings,(in my opinion) so I wrote stories that had endings that I could enjoy.
I know I've told the story before about how I was watching Return of the Jedi in the movie theater, totally loving all the action and the tension with Han and Leia, but I was so disappointed in the ending. That party with the ewoks should have been Han and Leia's wedding. Sigh. I went home and rewrote it how I thought it should have ended and just kept on with writing stories of my own.
Recently I've been rewatching a TV series that has another difficult ending for me. I am so tempted to rewrite it to how I think it should have ended, just so I can have some sense of closure (and maybe a bit more romance, haha!)
So, how does this equate to my word count you ask? It's motivating me to want to get this story out. I like how my books end and I know the captain's story (and the ending to the Hostage Negotiation Team series) is going to be awesome if I can just get it down on paper and out of my head.
I got 1200 words this week. How did you do?
