After finishing a novel have your students create their own alternate ending. This sheet has students give summaries, interview students on their views of the ending of the book, and graphic organizers to organize their ideas. This is a very thorough pre-writing assignment- it is an edible document so feel free to cut some planning if necessary. I had my students write five paragraphs for their writing- an introduction, one paragraph for each event they wanted, and a conclusion. Rubric included as well.
