I have a question for all you writers out there (and I know you're out there): how do you come up with compelling endings for your stories? I tend to start out at a good clip and then get bogged down somewhere in the middle. This is a problem for me at the moment because I'm working on a story for a friend which I need to finish, but it can't have just any old ending -- it needs to be one that makes the story worth reading. Not necessarily a twist ending, since I'm not much like M. Night Shyamalan, but something worthwhile. Anyone have any exercises to get those creative juices flowing?
