I have to admit that I started posting It's a Helluva Job too soon. Now it looks like I will never finish it. I could and should say the same about On Dog Creek I've been very dissatisfied with the ending as I wrote it. The main reason I wrote the end as I did was to be able to say 'That's all folks' because that is all I had at the time and that is all that I've ever had. I have a few more partial chapters of It's a Helluva Job but they don't really do much to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion. Indeed I find that the hardest part of writing is that I don't know how to close out a story.
