First know how it ends

This may seem obvious - but then again, maybe not. Back in my days of thirty-page novel starts that never went anywhere, i never knew how the story would end. it was only when I figured this key point out that I finished a novel. (Hearts in Stitches), a supposed-to-be funny romance novel about a nurse and an architect that, fortunately, died by fire. Actually, was killed by fire. By me. On purpose. Trust me - it was kinder that way.)

You can simply tell yourself, "When I reach the part of this story where the heroine kills the villain with his own sword just as he's about to kill her in front of the bound hero, and then the heroine frees the hero and they both escape from the burning building." You can hold that in your head and work with it, and it may be enough.
