When do you end a story?


DJ and Sherry discuss the pros and cons of series writing and how to know when to end a story.

DJ's Blog:

When is enough, enough? How do you know when a story is finished?

I love book series.  I love revisiting characters and seeing them in new situations, however there seems to be a serious series epidemic these days.   It is rare these days that you can  pick up a book and get the whole story from beginning to end.  And even in books that are fully contained, there is almost always more books down the road.  Especially in the mystery and urban fantasy genres.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  But neither is it always good.
