got epilogue?

Generally, I’m not a big fan of epilogues. I like my novels to end neat and tidy, without having to get into the eventual fates of the characters. I guess, in other words, I like the “here and now” of reading, of feeling the experiences as they happen. Reading an epilogue often feels kinda like a rip-off, like I missed something and I’m playing catch-up or that I’m being spoon-fed a series of events that I wasn’t privy to when they were actually happening.

Ironically, as I finish up my chapter-by-chapter summations for Baby Grand, I find myself in a position where I am toying with the idea of an epilogue to achieve the kind of ending I had always wanted for this novel. Ugh. There’s gotta be a way around this. You know what I’ll be doing today…
