What are some effective ways to recall past events in a character's life? I feel this is important that the reader knows what went on with this character's past because it has a major impact on how she interacts with others. I know of flash backs but I'm not sure that such a long story would work with that. I'm not entirely sure how to do this because in the past I never gave the reader a lot of information about a character's background. I see now where that wasn't working too well. Thanks for your time.
