THE SCENE: brother is in next room, skyping while gaming
Brother: Hey, that’s not funny. And sort of sexist.
Me: (on high alert)
Brother: Besides, my sister is even scarier in the kitchen.
Me: *opens door, puts candy on keyboard, leaves*
Dude, no. Don’t do write: “flashback” and “back to the present” or anything like that in the text. This is not a script or a comic book. You can clear up in two words that we are getting a flashback, you don’t have to put it front and centre, your readers are not idiots! They will realize what…
Bless this post.
