The best novel endings are masterclasses in how to end a book. Think of the closing lines to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, for example: ‘And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock.

What Do All Good Endings Have. But there are other considerations—especially if we’re writing a story that doesn’t have such strong conventions, where anything goes.
