2. Do you like happy endings? I believe that an ending should be appropriate to the story that's being told. If nothing really awful happens, I'm fine with ending on a "happy for the moment," "positive," or "cautiously optimistic" note, but not a "happy ever after" note, because that isn't true to life. Because the stories of the four main characters in "Chasing the Moon," are relatively light in tone, giving them happy endings works.
But I've also written stories that are sufficiently dark to warrant less than happy endings.
Come back next Wednesday to hear what the rest of the anthology's authors have to say about their stories. E. B. Davis
