How Should I End Hermione’s Choice? December 15, 2008

Posted by Me in Hermione's Choice.

I’ve reached a point in the story where I need to make a decision and I’m seeking reader input about it.

Hermione’s Choice has been a longer and more successful story than I ever imagined when beginning to write it.  When I post this week’s chapter, it will go over one hundred thousand words, which will make it the longest story I’ve ever written.

For the future of this story, I have three choices:

  • End the story with the birth of Lucius’ and Hermione’s baby, and add an epilogue of a length I’ve yet to determine.
  • Keep on writing the story, with perhaps a jump at some point to several years in the future, which would most likely be their daughter’s first year at Hogwarts.
  • Write a sequel story, beginning with their daughter’s first year at Hogwarts

Keep in mind that I have a new Lucius story on the drawing board now, entitled The Only Daughter.  This story will not pair him with Hermione.  (I’ll leave the pairing a secret until I start posting).   If I choose to write a sequel to Hermione’s Choice,   I will write The Only Daughter first, before proceeding to writing the sequel.
