Amy Meyer (Aimala) | 1 comments My question is about your general writing process.

I was wondering how important it is to you to have an ending in mind before your sit down to write the story.

Thank you!
~ Amy

Very important, actually. With my first novel (STIRFRY) I changed my mind just before publication, and changed the ending dramatically, but these days I'm more sure of what I'm doing. I have the last scene in mind all the way through the writing process, so that everything should lead to that point.

I definitely appreciate the ending and the fact that it wasn't an entirely dark story. Good decision!
