As many writers know, cliffhangers are a definite necessary evil in writing a good story. Readers hate reading them, because the story abrubtly stops during exciting moments. At the same time writers (myself included) like writing them because it draws in the audience and makes them want to return for more. So I came up with an idea (with mod approval) to start a Cliffhanger Writers Anonymous where we can discuss the good and bad points of writing cliffhangers, as well as the finer details of writing a good cliffhanger. So a few questions to start this off. Do you write cliffhangers? Why do you write them?
