I just started a new Urban Fantasy book. One thing that struck me is the amount of backstory. It is rather dumped in–nothing subtle about it. But it does give information on who the characters are and how they fit together.
Backstory is important. How to introduce it is tricky. If you read anything on the internet, you’d think backstory is evil. But without it we don’t understand those connections, or why we should care about the characters.
So for today’s prompt, create some backstory for two characters. Write a scene where necessary information is given, but without dumping it on the character and overwhelming the reader. Go on, you can do it.
