Day 5 of Act 1, #amwritingromance #morethanaguiltypleasure

Woo-hoo, More Than A Guilty Pleasure class, Day 5, watch you go! How’s the edging going?

Ok, you know what you can do today?

A tiny bit of backstory…

Stop, stop! That’s too much!

Just a little bit.

You’ve got all of Act 2 for backstory. The purpose of Act 1, kitten, is to make your reader addicted to your characters, your pacing, your plot. Do not bore them with a detailed account of your heroine’s traumatic dental surgery when she was six. (But, you CAN hint at how she does not like dentists.)
