Writing Tip Wednesday – Hooks and Endings

JA Huss

Welcome to video three of The Perfect Story. This video is about hooking your reader and writing a great ending and concludes basic story structure.  From this point on I’ll talk mostly about craft, so if you still think you need some help in structure, check out those books below. Here are the links to the previous writing videos in case you missed them. (and excuse my typos/mistakes… I literally made this video last night at midnight)

Beginnings
Middles and Scenes
Hooks and Endings
Pov/Characters
Settings/Series
Pacing/Suspense
Exposition/Dialogue
Sex Scenes
Literary Devices
Editing/Blurbs

If you’re interested in learning more about story structure, these three books have been really helpful for me.

The Plot Whisperer” by Martha Alderson
Story Engineering” by Larry Brooks
The Story Grid” by Shawn Coyne
