Road Trip Wednesday #33: About That Ending

Welcome to our 33rd Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
If you could rewrite the ending of any book, how would you rewrite it and why?

Emilia: "Because more than anything, Harry Potter deserved to go out with a bang . . ."

Kate: "As you can see, I like to use the Carrie Ryan theory of plotting: What's the worst that could happen?"

Kristin: "I don't expect a mind-blowing moment of growth . . ."

Road Trip Song of the Week:
"The End" by The Doors

Next week's topic: How would YOU impress (or not impress) the Hunger Games judges?
Emilia Plater

Emilia is a YA author who avoids studying, food that isn't covered in cheese, and waking up before 10:30AM whenever possible. A bundle of confusions.

  3. Harry Potter is a VERY popular one! Mine is on Harry Potter and Twilight. I figure enough people have read them that it wasn't a spoiler. I also didn't want to slam a debut novel.
