Flashbacks in novels cause time and space confusion with readers and rip apart the finely woven dream created in the here and now of the real story time.
Flashbacks outside of writing are another thing entirely.
I joined Red Room in 2008 and never bothered to refresh my bio information I initially set up until today. Reading what I had written way back when was like flashing back in time to who I was before being swept up by my agent and then my publisher and writing the Plot Whisperer series of plot books for writers.
Reading who I used to be reminds me of the beginnings of Red Room, too.
We sure have come a long way, baby!!!
