comment How do you know when there's something missing in your story?
Thanks. But I think it's not necessary to close all the threads. If you leave them open the reader ends up thinking about them even after the end of the story (it lingers in them and that's good).

Oh, I see. Well, maybe she is right. But I still think it's more important to make the opening gripping. Plus, if you write a gripping opening sentence, the rest practically writes itself. But that's just me. It may not work for everyone. Just remember rules in writing are just scaffolds to build upon. No scaffold suits every building.
