Hi Gordon,

Thanks for your further insights!

I know some people will think... "Write backwards? That's a bit too wild for me!"

But, for me anyway, somehow, it seems to work...

While I don't really understand why, I also find that, if I'm interrupted. it's a lot easier to pick up where I left off...

Anyway, it solves the problem I have now (of being interrupted a lot by a very active baby)...

Best wishes,


Thanks Dien,

I often start at the finish line, not only with writing, but with all planning.

In fact, it is a piece of the foundation of the SQ1, the whole BACKWARD CHAINING concept. Also, a keystone of Harvey Brody's view from the rooftop and steps down the ladder.

But, as you relate it, I often do this with scripts, and with the last 5 years of heavy study (meaning I've streamed a ton of TV/Movies), I often try to guess the end or twist from the first few minutes. Writers love to end where they started. So this is some dang fine advice here. Hope to see some of the results of your methods.
