The End in Mind

How clear is your ending at the beginning?

Wondering what I mean by that? Then you need to hop over to Story Empire where SEer Harmony Kent takes an in depth look at writing with “The End in Mind”

Story Empire

Hello SEers! It’s great to see you here today 🙂

When we write, we create things twice—first, in the mind, and then in the real world. To make the best reality, we have to begin with the end in mind. If we want to tell a story, to sit and write a novel, then we need to know the end (or have a good idea of what we intend).

Even though things may change as we invent, we still need to begin with at least a rough outline of the beginning, the middle, and the end. We need to have an awareness of the point to the tale. Both our characters and plot need to show some development and change by the time it’s all finished and done with.

If you envisage the end clearly enough, you will find less trouble in writing your way there. I have no doubt…

    • It sounds like you’ve got a really good grasp where things are headed, Flossie.I like the way you described phrases from the end beckoning you onward. That is a great way to stay motivated in the story!
