goals and end points

May 23, 2013

 

white_chain_cb_250I was telling —

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.
