Hello. I've never even attempted to write a book before; only screenplays (never finished though...). So, the whole vast detail and narrative aspects are new to me. I tried coming up with a style I thought would work for my kind of story. The story is both character and plot driven. I do have a central character, but he's only an inch more important than some of the other characters. I want to be able to tell each of the characters' back story in between action through a narrative. What I'm talking about is sort of like Lost for anybody who has seen it (Each episode focuses on one person and their back story through flashbacks, but also shows other characters in present time). This is the formula I've come up with. Chapter: 1. Character Background (about 1 page). 2. First Act. 3. Small Character Memory from the Past. 4. Second Act. 5. Small Character Memory from the Past. 6. Third Act. 7. Cliffhanger. Each chapter would kind of play out like an episode with a central goal, then the basis for the following chapter would come up in the cliffhanger. The acts wouldn't necessarily focus on the person who's background is being shown, but they would play a role in them. I know, it all depends on the writing, but as a general rule of thumb; does this sound like a good style?
