Thank Mr McKee - you definitely triggered some thoughts I haven't asked or meditated on.
Awesome...

My ending is the beginning.  But I like the ending at the beginning, it works this time with what I wrote.  Maybe with another project it would not be the same. I learned that the last word or sentance said was very important.  Can't remember now did I learn that last year at Story or somewhere else.

In the current story idea I'm fleshing out I've been able to see the beginning and ending quite clearly for awhile (not saying it won't change). For me, its filling in what the characters do in the middle that won't make the script cliche, which means more research. I'm not sure it works the same for every writer. When managing projects, you quite often here project managers classifying people as "start to finish" or "finish to start" thinkers. I think the distinction may apply to writers as well.

Hmm, if some authors claim that they start from the ending and then work themselves back into the story, how does this advice apply?  I am trying to write a story and can't even start because I cannot see the ending.  I do not know where this is going.  Is the journey worth it?  I gather from this lesson that I should just start writing, study the story and then let the ending come up.  It feels risky to spend all of those hours.  What if I get to the end and still have nothing?

This has been fantastic help.

What I particularly love is "It will come to you". Extremely encouraging. That single moment will keep me warm in the winters of my creativity.
