Fear of finishing

I've read 3/4 of The Tale of Desperaux twice now. I still don't know how it ends. I don't want that book to end. (Yes, I'm in denial.)

This happens all the time with books I really love (though eventually I finish them, with the above exception). It's a bad habit of mine, and now I realize I do the same thing when I'm writing.

I'm 3/4 of the way into my WIP. I really like this book. On the one hand, I can't wait to finish it, and send it out into the world.

But I'm having the hardest time finishing. Oh, I know how it will end. I know pretty much everything that has to happen.

I just can't seem to write it, because then the story will end.

This is a problem.

Does anyone else ever have this problem? Please someone tell me YES!?
