I've got 3 different drafts of this book written. Just can't figure how to tie it all together and end it.

What a ridiculous idea. Which of course means it's a license to make money. Get writing!

But shouldn't they also have "the one ring" and have to destroy it or something?

I'll add it to chapter 87. Good idea.

Give them all goggles, top hats, and a flying, wooden ship and I think you will have a license to print money.

You should have warned people with a SPOILER ALERT.

Now no one will buy it since they know the ending. soblue

However we do not all stay dead, you may call me Drachmael. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my pocket, and nothing particular to interest me in the mundane world I enrolled at Higfarts School of Sorcery and witchery.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

"And so here's Higfarts, sir, at last, and you'll be in plenty of time for dinner at the School-house, as I telled you," said the old guard, pointing his horn and tootle-tooing away, while the Bus driver started up the bus, and carried them along the side of the school close, round Dead-man's corner, past the school-gates, and down the High Street to the Spread Eagle, the wheels sparking ofs the gobles in a style which would not have disgraced "Cherry Bob," "ramping, stamping, tearing, swearing Billy Harwood," or any other of the old busing heroes.

the bus stopped, for there was a sudden stillness. The storm had passed; and, perhaps in sympathy with nature's silence, my heart seemed to cease to beat. But this was only momentarily; for suddenly the moonlight broke through the clouds showing me that I was in a graveyard and that the square object before me was a great massive tomb of marble, as white as the snow that lay on and all around it. With the moonlight there came a fierce sigh of the storm which appeared to resume its course with a long, low howl, as of many dogs or wolves.I was awed and shocked, and I felt the cold perceptibly grow upon me till it seemed to grip me by the heart. Then while the flood of moonlight still fell on the marble tomb, the storm gave further evidence of renewing, as though it were returning on its track. Impelled by some sort of fascination, I approached the sepulchre to see what it was and why such a thing stood alone in such a place.I walked around it and read, over the Doric door, in Wizardword...

I'm surprised you don't have this up as a preorder on Kickstarter yet.

You don't have it up on Kickstarter yet, do you?

You forgot that there was a prophecy that made the main character special rather than anything they actually did themselves.

Can the twist ending be that the entire story occurred in a young autistic boy's mind in a hospital room?
