The Ending of A Story
May 14, 2009 4:30pm CST
I don't know if any other writer experienced the same or maybe encounter the same problem with me, but I always have this problem whenever I write a story. It is always easy to start writing something, but when it comes to the ending, I would find the writer's block, and never able to write anything. That was why there are lots of unfinished stories in my folders and I couldn't finish them even until now. I wonder if there is a good way to make the ending of the story. If anyone knows how to do that, please share it with me because I am a bit desperate in writing because of that.

That is the reason that I haven't written any stories! I can think of plenty of beginnings, but no endings. I am not going to start writing a story unless I can think of an ending first. If you have many stories without endings maybe you could try doing it backwards. Imagine a scene like at the end of a film and think of what could have led up to that final scene, if you are lucky it might join up with something you have written, and if it doesn't you might end up with a new story that does have an ending! Now I've thought of that, I might try it.

That could be a really good idea. I mean, I have never tried thinking backwards like that. I really hope that one day, I would be able to make a story which is finished and (maybe) published and stored in the bookstore. I don't need to make a best seller as long as people would like it. LOL.
