Have you ever come to the end of a novel and thought there was something missing? A firmer resolution, perhaps, or a final thought to tie everything together? This is the purpose of an epilogue. An epilogue always comes at the end of a story but is separate from the final chapter. When done well, an epilogue can have a big impact on readers, providing a sense of closure in a way that a final chapter sometimes cannot, or does not, do.
