Writing prequels

Book Daily has published a "How To" article on writing prequels. It has some good ideas about how to make a story that captivates a reader, even when the reader already knows exactly how the story ends.

Adding a cameo and/or a plot twist, and growing the character are all good ideas. Some of the other suggestions I’m not so sure about. But this article certainly provides excellent food for thought for anyone considering a prequel or side story.

The original article is here;
