on Backstory

"Everything before the Forestory--or what most people just call the story. This is where Justifications are built and Problems begin. If you want to know why a character is motivated to do what they do, you'll find the answer in here. There is nothing wrong with Backstory--in fact, you kinda need it. But you need a sophisticated way to present it without someone standing there explaining it all.

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
