Is there any way to say that when you write a story, it has to "have a moral"? (i.e. it has to teach you something). Is there a clear translation for that in Chinese?
You can translate 'moral' as 寓意 and thus 'have a moral' as '有寓意' (故事要有寓意). Alternatively, you could say 故事要有教育意义 (the story has to be educational).
Required, but never shown
