Most stories have an introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, and conclusion, no? Well, the only way I can write my story is by scrapping all of it. I'm writing about a 9-year-old sweatshop worker in a 3rd world country. Most people assume that I will write a happy ending, but I won't, because I can't. What I want to convey is the despair of the situation. I want to convey the poverty, the tears, the hunger, the pain. I want to convey how, try as she might, she will never get out of poverty. I can't do that if she gets rich at the end, you know what I'm saying? So, although my story ends on a note of hope, it's essentially "Daily life in a sweatshop". Will this make for a sucky story or can I pull it off?
