Dr. Joyce Armstrong Carroll does it again. She brings all of her insight and expertise to the ending of things. Conclusions, the often overlooked, those unicorns of composition. Elusive and hard to find anything written about them. In her usual depth she looks at the way writers of all genres deal with bringing closure to their writing. Her examples are from the most main stream to a nine year old student in South Texas. She categories the types of conclusions writers have produced and gives ample excerpts from all types of writing.
