The Ending of the Quest Plot is featured as Tuesday's Writer's Tip #BWLAuthor #MFRWAuthor #Plot #Quest #Ending

 Once you've navagated the middle of the Quest story, you have reached the end. Things to remember is the main character has to change. Another is that he or she may gain what they sought, they may find a different object or they can fail. This is known as the resolution and brings the quest to an end.

Often the characters in this story are young who must leave their home. During the journey, they must mature and are becoming adults. Perhaps not in years but in emotional development. Now you have the climax scene. Here, the main character either accepts or rejects what they have learned or gained during their adventure.

Things to remember while writing a quest story.

This is a search for a person, place or thing.

This is a journey perhaps visiting many places along the way.

Consider ending where the character began. Not always possible.

The main character must change emotioanlly and in character.

There is usually at least one traveling companion and also a helpful person who may be considerably older.
