Alternative Ending, Guys?

4 11 2010

Check this one out!


How Lord of The Rings should have ended…. Seriously, that’s a great idea. I mean, the birds do exist even in the original stories, right? Why don’t they just wait for these blasted birds to come for around 30 minutes, and then fly to Mordor for 15 minutes. That will take 45 minutes to finish the movie, with additional few minutes before the meeting. Approximately, this story will be less than 1 hour—no need to divide it into 3 parts! 🙂

Of course, that’s a lazy alternative. Very quick, very short, and ironically very logical. What a shame….

Anyway, NaNo is now in progress. Have you thought of this kind of alternatives in your story? Is there a way to make your story no more than 3 paragraphs long? If the answer is yes, be careful. Just why does your character want to take all of the difficult adventures, with their lives in grief danger, if they can just fetch a ride and free from trouble? Very short alternative. No need for 50,000 words; it seems to me you’ve finished the whole novel.

“Well, that was incredibly easy.” Why, it’s true! 🙂
