Endings and Lots More

At the last meeting of the "Writing Children's Picture Books" I teach, someone asked if writing endings is hard for other people, too, or just for her? Check out #7 on this great list of short, pithy writer tips here. Then study the rest of them because there's a lot of good stuff. Like #4, a little fill in the blank story starter : Once upon a time there was ___. Every day, ___. One day ___. Because of that, ___. Because of that, ___. Until finally ___. 
What's your story going to be?

Oops! I made a spelling mistake on my first try. I bet we all have to think hard on endings. I think that the key to the ending is right there at the beginning--or ought to be!
