Flashbacks can be tricky to write.

But on the other hand, they can lack urgency, become confused with the present-day narrative, or seem more like backstory. Again, sounds challenging, right? This is where the P. Method comes in. What is the P. Method, you might be wondering? Every flashback should have a reason for being in the story. Whatever that reason may be, it should be clear to the reader immediately or if the flashbacks tell a story or reveal clues for a revelation sometime within the sequence of memories.
How is it important to the story? It even made me question whether those relationships mattered to the character — and why the flashbacks were there to begin with.
But if an event from the past evokes strong emotions in us, we often remember it clearly for a long time. The same goes for our characters. When you include enough dialogue, sensory details, brief setting descriptions, and significant objects in a flashback, you accomplish two important feats:. And nurturing that character-reader bond is one of the most crucial parts of story-writing, right?
What if, however, your intention is to blur the lines between memory and reality? In that case, you can play with these rules to your liking, maybe by alternating between past and present tense or crafting ambiguous transitions between flashbacks and the current-day storyline. Be careful, though. This approach can give a distorted, disjointed tone that might not be appropriate for the story.
