It isn’t easy to know when to end a story, especially when it’s popular. If it isn’t the fans demanding more it’s the networks or publishers demanding the next chapter because they’re earning money. The Simpsons is a good example to some of a show that maybe ran out of steam but still makes episodes because die-hard fans want to, while the sitcom Family Ties famously ended on a high note when they decided they had followed the characters as far as they needed to and had no more stories to tell. While this demand issue isn’t brought up in author James Harrington’s article, he does goes into when it’s the best time to end a story, and what to do with plot ideas you have lying around after the fact.
