Ever see a movie or read a book that left you totally annoyed because the ending sucked? While reading or watching something, we intrinsically know what will bring about a satisfactory finish and we get frustrated when art falls short of our expectations. In real life, sometimes endings are messy and unsatisfying and heart-wrenching. Nothing can change facts. They're fixed in stone. And nothing is more depressing than the unchangeable bad news we find in reality. It seems we get no respite from it. So why not make some good news.
Rip this creative writing exercise from the headlines: Take an article from a magazine, newspaper or webpage with bad news and rewrite it with alterations so that it becomes good news.
An ending can change in the hands of a writer. Write one that makes you smile.
