· Here's a great list, from Charlotte Dillon's website, of points that should be included at the end of a book! I used it as a checklist and hope it helps you too .
Starts with crisis, where the worst that can happen happens-- the supreme test, the forced confrontation with the internal conflict.
· Plunges protagonist into the dark moment, where lies despair, fear of failure... and the decision to do what it takes to recover, including overcoming the internal conflict.
· Forces a decision on the protagonist which leads to the action that brings on the climax.
· In the climax, brings the external conflict to explosion and, through effective protagonist action, resolves it.
· In the resolution, restores the world to order, but shows the changes that result from the plot events.
