5. Is an Epilogue necessary?!A Lesson by Cassandra Del Toro
when is an epilogue necessary? I may not have the answer to that, but I sure do have an idea of when to have it in use.
Is an Epilogue necessary?!
To lots of writers' frustration, sometimes things that seem necessary to them really isn't.
Some of the most questions will be "is the epilogue necessary?"
well, the epilogue is only what ends up happening after someone good triumphs or someone bad comes to success.
If say the story ended with an evil man or woman's death, to add more excitement, then most likely you'd love to put that more evil had come to the world after their death. If your story's epilogue ends like this, then you'll give the writer an idea that there will most likely be a second story, a sequel if you will.
But the author will most likely know the answer to this problem.
Having an epilogue at the ending is most like to be used when your ending really isn't an ending, but a beginning.
As always... an example.
... even though that the world had been brought down with mercy after the death of the evil and devastating man, there was something telling me that our troubles were still not over. But I shouldn't fear, but celebrate my victory. Even a hero needs a rest."epilogue"
Even though what had come to an end was no longer a threat, everything seemed possible for me. I was glad to know that our troubles were faced and then demolished with a single mortal combat.
Just to let you know, that this is only an example and I really have no use to it.
Now, you tell me.
Is the epilogue necessary? Why or why not?
To my opinion, I thought it was necessary, although I only wrote this in under a few minutes...
Even an ending has a new beginning.
Hopefully you know what I meant... lol, sometimes I may not even understand what I try to say.
Well, answer my question and try using an epilogue for your story.
