As the last few hours of National Novel Writing Month tick by, hopefully you have your manuscript in good shape. Now all you need to do is add that final sentence to tie everything together brilliantly. Writing a last sentence can be as frustrating as writing the first. You want it to be fantastic, memorable, life-changing, and worthy of being quoted for years to come! These are the last words you will share with the reader, so make them count!
Because time is of the essence, we have done the work for you! Here are some great final sentences that we created. You can thank us by selling your book for a million dollars.
