Welcome to this week’s writing challenge prompt!
Let’s write a story backwards this week. Start with this final line:
I never really thought it would get that far.
What’s the first scene or character that comes to your mind? Figure out where the story will end and how you can build to that moment.
Writers often use this technique, even when writing longform stories like novels. You might get inspired to reach a certain point in a story and have no idea where to start. Instead of feeling intimidated, use this prompt to practice for that moment.
Anyone can write a story from start to finish, but you’re about to get so much better at writing your stories in any direction.
