I work on this constantly, telling students they have to
know where the story is going before they begin to write,
because that will help with crafting. Still, there are
always two or three who start writing with absolutely no
idea about direction. I always ban the "And then I woke
up..." endings and, for the first part of the year, they
are not allowed cliffhangers either.
Any helpful ideas, please?
