"And in real life endings aren't always neat, whether they're happy endings, or whether they're sad endings."
I will have to remember this quote! It's amazing at how much you can learn from a master... although I doubt that he thinks of himself as such lol. Anyway, I particularly like this quote because I have a tendency to wrap up all the threads in neat little packages. I want everything in it's own little place at the end of my novels. It never occurred to me that the ends could be a little messy... just to keep them the readers guessing!
