A student today, the goal isn’t to figure out how the writer wants a story to end and build a story towards that —
The goal is to figure out how the character wants the story to end and then throw the biggest obstacles in the way of that you can.
It’s up to the character to make the story end right.
It’s up to the writer to make it harder than hell for the character to pull that off.

I think sometimes I know too many secrets. That they will overrun me one day and crowd out everything else until there is nothing left but the echoing light and thunder of all these secrets leaving me paralyzed with no words –
With secrets, words are forbidden.
I think this is how writers are made. People who are bound by secrets so long one day in place of silence something new is born, something made up, something fiction, anything, everything, just to fill that void of non-sound.
Writers tell the truth through lies.
How messed up is that?
