Beginnings Hook Readers. Endings Create Fans

Ten reasons why I nearly always begin a plot workshop, consultation, presentation at the Climax and why you should begin with ideas about what happens at the end of your story and plot your way to the beginning:
  1. Fresh start 
  2. Shakes things up
  3. Pulls writers out of their comfort zone
  4. Forces writers to move beyond the character's backstory into the real story
  5. Key elements reveal themselves at the end
  6. How to portray the character in the beginning emerges from how the character acts at the end
  7. When you know how your story ends, you are better able to determine where to begin your story
  8. Most writers write the beginning 100 times and are lucky if they write the climax even once
  9. Writing the end seals the promise you can write from the beginning and get there
  10. The climax becomes the beacon that guides you to finish
