The best stories move the reader along by building tension, suspense and conflict to a resolution. How do you accomplish this when you’re interweaving multiple stories from multiple historic time periods? My guest author of Oubliette, A Forgotten Little Place Vanta M Black comes on to discuss writing based on historical characters, writing with structure, busting through writer’s block, pulling from other writer’s classic structure, writing in first person, how locations and timelines affect the writing, the power of experiencing your locations, trying a different point of view, theme and using foreshadowing to connect and tell your stories and the different layers of editing and pacing.
