What makes a perfect ending?
What makes the perfect, or at least a good, ending?
I want to write a story that was told to me by an elderly friend just before she died.
It involved a mouse who was believed to be wrapped up in a package and put in the mail.
The real conclusion to this true story is rather uneventful, as the mouse was not really in the package at all, so I have told it to my grandchildren with several different endings.
My adult friends do not seem to like any of these resolutions when I suggest trying to write this story. How does one pick the "perfect" ending?
