Hey guys! I joined like a month ago, and this is my first real post since joining (other than my welcome post) and I finally got all my notes and ideas in place to begin writing, but im so stuck on where to begin! all my characters/goals/back-stories/ and plot points are written, but TELLING the story is a real challenge. Here is my question: Do I begin my story with my protagonists back-story? or do I slowly reveal it during the course of the story? Heres the Jist of my story - short as possible. 10 years after zombie apocalypse anti hero/loner Bane taking advantage of his immunity to the disease to search for his lost love. his back story (short) Bane was raised by a circus and fell in love with the animal handler Olivia. After a fight they had Bane ran off on his own. Upon return he sees the aftermath of his circus home after the zombie attack. so he spends the next 10 years looking for her. strong willed she is still alive. (The actual story starts 10 years after the circus massacre) so should I begin the story at the circus? Or should i begin in present day and slowly reveal his past?
