This Story Ends How It Began

Storytelling is all about change. It may seem counterintuitive to return to the narrative point of entry for the ending, but what better way is there to highlight the story’s metamorphosis? Establish actions and symbols that define your character, and then return and change them in some dramatic way. For an example of how to do this right, see Shyamalan’s ‘The Sixth Sense’.
