Hi All, I've always read that readers don't always want a perfect outcome to the end of a story, and in fact, there could be / should be loose threads. I am writing a novel right now, and not that all the characters are good or anything, but I'm trying to really characterize some of them so that the reader grows attached to them. However, the ending I have is good and bad. How do you feel when something bad happens to a character at the end of a story? Do you end up hating the whole story?
