Title: Keeping track of timelines
Post by: Aviola on June 18, 2018, 11:43:17 AM
Hi everyone,

My first novel pretty much just followed the two main characters, so keeping the timings of events in order was pretty simple.
The story I'm working on now is meant to be more of an ensemble, so I was wondering if anyone has any tips for assembling it all?

Thanks

Transitions can be tricky to handle well consistently. Broadly, one thought is to give the reader due credit by not overwriting or being too telly when making a leap.
