Do you bounce ideas off of one another?

When the darkness of the Abyss threatens the world, the Phoenix will rise amidst a whirlwind of fire and light.

Do you not find that the story impact is dulled because of the ending though?

Yiazzy: Occasionally, it depends on the lead up to it. That usually happens when a writer can't step up his game during the story's climax. I plan to rewrite mine half a dozen to a dozen times before my instincts tell me that I'm happy with it.
JMG: Van Helsing is a great story, good choice. As for the Princess Bride I don't know much about it.

The only part i plan on re-writing is the prologue atm....

No, what i meant is, is the impact more dulled than it would have been if you never knew what would happen in the ending?

I plan on rewriting chapter I before publishing it.

Ish. I think that the ending is one of the most important parts of a story.

Yeah I agree completely with you there.

Maybe this should also be a topic for authors to share ideas for climaxes, conflicts, resolutions, conclusions, etc.

Well I have my ideas for Laiho. His lunacy is bound to overwhelm his mind and tax his sanity. lol.

Really? He seems in control and fairly reserved to me at the moment. Anyway I've updated my story. It's more important than filler but slightly less important than the main plot. Feel free to read and comment (I could probably use the help lol(oh and ignore the s*Bleep*ed, the censor cancelled the racist part of the word)).

Have you ever seen Van Helsing? Once the werewolf bites him his sanity is the price for strength. Same thing with Laiho. After Lamence and Laiho had their 'encounter', Laiho "hasn't been himself".

Really I hinted at it.

"He placed his hand on his neck..." After the mentioning of the name Lamence. He is very hesitant about talking about vampires.

Maybe you should just put "GRAPHIC NOVEL" next to it. That'll drive most weak-stomached people away.
My next post isn't going to be for a coupla days probably... the next part is important so I want to do a good job.
