    Post a beginning/ beginnings

    Teachers,
    Is this grammatically correct?
    Some stories don't have a clear beginning.

    Or should it be "Some stories don't have clear beginnings."?

    Thanks.

    Re: a beginning/ beginnings

    Both are OK.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    I don't see how it's possible for them not to mean the same thing.
