I am putting flashbacks in the novel I’m currently writing. So of coarse I went and did some research on it so here is the 4 things your novel must have before you start with flash backs.
1. A bond between the reader and the character.
2. A goal your character is working towards.
3. Something standing in your characters way of completing their goal.
4. Your story must make readers curios to know what happened in the passed.
