This week's question/activity:

Change the plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or the plot thread? Go ahead and do it... change it. 

Oh, man. I don't know. Maybe I'm weird (okay, we know I am), but I really typically don't think about what I would do differently if I were the author. There might be things I'd never consider and would definitely leave out even if I had (read: Twilight baby-love... *shudder*). Sometimes I wonder if epilogues are completely necessary (Hunger Games, Harry Potter), but then I think it's nice to know what happens in the future. And you know you're not getting anymore... it's a definite. So, really... I can't think of any I'd definitely change or alter in any way. :(

What about you?

  2. I kind of feel the same way, and I didn't participate this week. First of all, I'm not a writer -- well, not a fiction writer. I have great respect for authors, so even if I don't like the ending, I never think about how I think it should have ended.

    Happy weekend!

    1. Exactly! It's not my story to change... plus, I don't think I've ever been completely disappointed that I thought I would've done it differently.

  3. Hopping through. I do have somethings I wish were different but I know what you mean. I did particularly love the epilogue in Harry Potter.

  4. I'm also usually pretty happy with authors' decisions on how to end books, unless I just don't like the book at all - then I'd probably change a lot :)

  7. For the most part, I can do with out epilogues. They usually leave me thinking of the book in a different light - which is not good. I'm content with a regular ending and not knowing how life panned out for the characters. I can't think of one book where an extended look at their future lives really provided closure. It usually raised more questions.
