Quick question: Is it wise to know the ending to your story before you even write it?

It can be helpful to at least have a rough idea of where you want your story to go. Doesn't mean you must have a great conclusion ready right off the bat, as a story can grow beyond your original bounds. But at least some idea of what point/story you're trying to make should help with the structure, placing things to allude back to later, etc.

While doing a series of novels is a great goal, I'd recommend focusing on one at a time and making sure each story is worth telling in it's own right.


Thank you.

When you have a slight idea of how you want it to end it means that you can effectively foreshadow what's to come in the earlier chapters and it makes your characterisation and character development better in my opinion as you have an idea how they have to progress to bring about the conclusion
