Today I want to teach you that writers get their characters out of trouble. They solve the problem and make a satisfying ending for their reader. Today I want you to keep working on your realistic fiction book. When you get to the middle and end of your story, start writing about how your character solves their problem. What happens to your character at the end of the story? I’m going to tell you a story. I want you to think of an ending for me. There’s no such thing as a perfect ending. One story can have so many endings! Now go back to your own story. Let’s write a creative and satisfying ending.
