A quote from American Romance Author, Julia Quinn, "You always get more respect when you don't have a happy ending."
I must admit many of my screenplays for the most part don't have a happy ending, some just end on a hopeful sense or with a question mark. How do you all feel about unhappy endings? Have any writers here have written stories with what you would consider, unhappy endings? Here's a personal quote.
"When I write about my pain, is when the healing begins."
To me this is a happy ending....partially.
