Re: A FLASHBACK TO TELL MY STORY?

I agree with Havel you need something that ties the characters together and tells the audience where they are and when they are. Flashbacks can be confusing if you don't give the audience important that tells them when they are in time. A good way to avoid this is by writing the story backwards so t...
