In my travels thru the many websites that provide how to's, tips, guidelines ect... about writing I have noticed a common suggestion that conflicts with many short stories that I have read. So I would like to get other writes POV a particular short story suggestion that is as follows. Start as close as possible to the end of the story. I have read this many times and can see why or at least I think I can see why but many short stories I have read do not follow this suggestion at all and are still great stories. I realize that it is just a suggestion and not a rule but I would like to know what other have to say about it.
