OK. So you want to write a story and have an idea in mind but you’re not really sure where to start. One idea to try, and it has worked for me, is to start at the end. I know that might sound illogical but think about it; a movie or book can be really good until you get to the end and it ruins the entire story—just like every horror movie. Not that horror movies are good to begin with. Nevertheless, you could write a really great story and then find yourself stuck at the end because you have no idea where to go from there. Why not start at the end and work your way backwards? Go ahead and give it a try, you might be surprised.
When I started writing The Half-Breed Series I had one idea in mind about the ending. Of course, it has developed and grown since then but the same idea has held. I then let the rest of the story flesh out from there. It worked pretty well and I am proud of what has come of the story.
Well, I hope that this helps. It is a small bit of advice and won’t work for everyone but it’s worth a try because you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t need some help.
