P.S. In my one novel that I'm editing, I realized that there is a lot of backstory that needs to be told. So, I'm trying to decide if I should show some of my main character's past through flashbacks, OR just write the book in two parts. Which would you enjoy reading more--flashbacks or a 2-part story?? If you could give my some advice know, I would be forever grateful!! :)

  1. Fun tag!

    Now, as to your writing question....

    I'm going to write my story into two parts because of necessity of backstory, but I did realize something a couple weeks ago. What I thought was backstory was really MORE then just backstory. It was actually a part of the story. A part that needed to be there to give the right level of depth to the rest of the story. And that's why I opted for a two part story then for a single part with a longe prolouge. So, I think it just depends on what kind of backstory it is and how important it is.

    I do like flashbacks though; they are always fun when everything ties together in the end.

    Sorry, I don't think that ramble was very helpful, but it was at the tip of my tongue, so I said it! Hope you figure out everything with too much frustration.
