You finally have a moment to write, but what to do with your limited time? Here’s a practical prompt to kickstart the story you’re working on right now. The clock is ticking, people. Start writing.
Re-read the first part of your story. Now put yourself in the reader’s shoes and guess what the most likely ending will be. Where do you think “the author” is going with the story? Now, take that very educated guess and make that ending a red herring. Finally, go create a completely different ending that uses the same story clues and information that will blow the readers socks off.
