I’ve always been good at starting stories, but not so hot at finishing them. I have files full of starts just waiting for an ending.
Having wailed my dissatisfaction with myself to my writing tutor, Sue Johnson, she came up with a ridiculously simple way of solving the problem. Her suggestion was to write the first and last lines of a story before you write anything else.
Using this technique you always know where you are heading. Drumroll please…..it works! I’m actually finishing stories.
Sue Johnson has just had a new book published Surfing the Rainbow – details here. This book is for anyone who has tried and failed to create the novel of their dreams. It aims to help writers with visualisation and chakra balancing.
I think Sue deserves the advertisement for getting me on track with finishing my stories.
Please share below any writing gems which have helped you.
