I wrote a short story where I was told the ending was fairly predictable. It wasn't my first choice in ending but I thought since my goal is to be published, maybe I should go the traditional route. I WAS going to have the ending be a type of "anti" ending where what would be thought of as a proper, predictable ending is not what happens. For example: What the story is now: A man is killed by another man who comes back as a ghost and gets revenge. The reader is satisfied through the killer's consequences and there is a big dramatic ending. What I was going to write: A man is killed by another man and the killer gets away with it. You as the reader don't like him and it is certain he should get what he deserves, but doesn't. There is no climactic ending; it just ends with the killer getting away with it. In fact the dramatic ending would be the murder and him leaving if there was to be one. On paper this may sound boring, but in terms of what is happening and making this true to life, I think this may be cool. My question is... a. will people read it? b. will it sell since it's not the normal a,b,c story line? I'm trying to find the line of being completely creative not only in the style of writing, but also structure and being able to sell my work in the long run.
