So I'm in the middle of writing this short that's turning out to not be so short anymore.... Anyways, you know how you can discover your story as much as you crate it? Well that's what has happened and I need to create a quick flashback sequence to emphasize the significance of of a character's relationship to the protagonist. I need to insert this into a faster paced part of the story. I know how this can bog down the action and progression of the story, but I'm confident its powerful enough to carry its own weight. My question is simple. Should I just insert the flash back as italicized text after a cue, then write it in past perfect tense? Or is there a better way to go about it? It's not vital and I can figure it out during rewrite, but any suggestions would help. Thanks. TGIF!
