    I don’t do the whole outline and treatment thing for my writing, let alone an ending before all else. Perhaps why I have never been a professional, paid writer, but…I still feel, in my gut, heart, and soul….true emotionally deep writing stems from how you feel, not how proper your proposal is. Some people work well within the societal boundaries…Others need free range, free reign…We are those who *can*…editors are the writers who can’t thus they edit…
    Call me jaded but I don’t think I am that far off.
    Unless writing a technical manual or specific ordered story treatment…writing should come from your core, your soul. Otherwise…you are just a robot regurgitating whatever society considers “normal” and “popular” at this time. The greatest writers never cared about that, they wrote what they felt.
    Writers in the digital age should be just as true and honest even if our work doesn’t go ‘viral’.

      Thanks Morgue. I don’t use outlines either. The ending thing is confusing me. I like the ending just can’t come up with a beginning and middle. Oh well will wait and see what happens. If it’s like a lot of stories it won’t go anywhere but the trash. I write a lot, but don’t post all of it. Sometimes I just don’t like it afterwards.

    I’m a believer that our dreams are unwritten stories in the making. I used to be able to remember my dreams clearly. I used to keep pen and paper by the bed. I think if you start with what you do remember, just work from there. Make up the rest as you go along. Perhaps you were just meant to remember the best parts.

      Thank you Toni! The bad thing is all my dreams are night mares including this one and the ending makes it necessary to make the story a scary one. I have never had an ending when I write. I start where I feel it and then write to fit what I started with. I have written the beginning first, occasionally the middle, but don’t remember writing from the end.
