Rewrite the Ending Writing Prompt

Writingprompt_bookWrite On! Change the End of Your Favorite Book

This week's Write On! Writing Prompt is a good one. It comes to us from Robyn who asks:

If you had to change the end of your favorite book, how would you change it?

Wow, right? Mostly, I wouldn't. I love how my faves end – Harry Potter, Twilight (for ages 12 and up), The Hunger Games (for ages 12 and up), Diary of a Wimpy Kid. But if I had to . . . (Twist my arm, Robyn!) I might change The Hunger Games series.

SPOILER ALERT!! Do not read the rest of this post unless you have finished reading Mockingjay!

I would not let Prim die. I wouldn’t turn Gale into such a villain, so the choice between Gale and Peeta would be harder.

But that’s just me! Drop a line, and let Robyn know how you would change the ending of your favorite book.

    Well i wouldn’t change the ending of any book but i’d like to add on a bit in the ending of the son of neptune it ends a bit too soon so i’ll end it only when they have landed and then after the reaction of campers is over and they are about to make plans for the quest

    I wouldn’t leave it at Tobias and Rachel kissing. What fun would that be? It needs more action and yes this is going to be mean but Tobias needs to almost die just one more time. So I would have it that they were flying and Tobias got attacked by a red-tailed hawk and dun dun dun it was David! That would make a good cliffhanger and a good next book!

    I would have Prim live to smile another day…
    I would have Gale learn that there are times when you have to let go of the people you love…
    I would have Haymitch have a second chance at life…
    I would give Finnick Odair another chance to hold Annie Cresta and see his only son…
    I would give Katniss’s father another chance to roam the woods…
    I would have Snow’s grand-daughter in the Games.
    Because until Panem learns that children shouldn’t be blamed for their fore-fathers’ crimes, they’ll find themselves deeper in the deception.
    That’s me being deep :)

    We flew the two of us. Together two birds of prey. The edvents of before excaped my mind. As I flew as free as ever. Me, Rachel and the sky.
