The ending is easily the most important part of your book.
So why do most writers plan out their ending last?
While writers naturally plot chronologically, I think a lot of problems can be solved if you start with the most important part of your story--its ending--and work your way backward from there.
That's what I'm tackling in this course.
Even better? I'm tackling it in a way that applies to outliners and non-outliners alike.

About KP Minicourses
KP Minicourses are built on the premise that many writers don't have time to take an intensive course on every writing subject.
Sometimes, you just need to get a solid foundation on core writing principles really fast.
That's what you get in each of our mini courses.
Each KP Minicourse is between twenty and thirty minutes long and gives you the crash course you need to go out and write.
Sometimes a short course means a simple course that only covers the basics. That's not what we're doing here. We don't want to waste your time with simple lessons.
Instead, each minicourse will take a common writing topic like genres or characters or plotting and approach it with a unique perspective that helps you situate the topic in the context of our overall goal as storytellers: to tell stories that both delight and instruct readers. These courses aren't as comprehensive as our main courses. But they aim to be an effective shortcut to help you start working on your story immediately.
Skeptical we can pack enough depth into 20-30 minutes? That's why we offer a 30 day money back guarantee with every course we sell. If you take one of our courses and don't feel like this course has helped you as a storyteller, simply shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll give you a full refund. So feel free to simply try a course out and see if it helps!
What This Course Covers
This course explains how to write an ending that will wow your readers--and how to then use your ending to reverse-engineer the beginning and middle of your book. The techniques used in these lessons can be applied at any point during the writing process--whether you're still plotting your book, you're in the middle of writing the book, or you've already written it. Check out the course syllabus below to see what you'll be learning.
Do You Want to Create an Ending that Enthralls Readers?
If so, you need to structure the whole book so that it's leading up to that ending.
That's what this course is going to teach you how to do.
The process of reverse-outlining your novel can end up solving the problems of a bland ending, a sagging middle, and an irrelevant beginning.
We're covering all three of those issues in this course.

I'm Josiah DeGraaf, a high school English teacher and the editor-in-chief of Kingdom Pen.
I write because I'm fascinated by human motivations. What causes otherwise-good people to make really bad decisions with their lives? Why do some people have the strength to withstand temptation when others don't? How do people respond to periods of intense suffering?
Great stories are those that both teach and delight readers, and for four years, I've been helping newer writers learn how to write these kinds of stories through my work at Kingdom Pen.
This mini-course is all about how to tackle one of those aspects of storytelling.
