Avoiding Deus ex machina endings should go without saying. If you write sci-fi or fantasy, set up the possibility for a dramatic ending so you don’t spring it on the reader out of the blue. Miracles are fine, as long as you develop the possibility beforehand. If one of your characters is going to die or get killed, be sure the threat of such an outcome is well-defined or at least hinted at.
