Technique

Skills such as pacing, tension, conflict, dialog, foreshadowing, point of view, and world-building are all part of your writing technique.

Memory Versus Flashback star
In fiction, what is the difference between a memory and a flashback? A memory summarizes the past, but a flashback shows an actual scene from the past which is integrated into the present-day story.

What is a Flashback? star
A fictional flashback is an advanced writing technique that transitions from a present-day scene to a scene set in the past. It is as if the reader has gone back in time to experience an event through the eyes of a younger version of the viewpoint character.

What is Point of View in Fiction? star
Point of view (or viewpoint) refers to how your character conveys your story. The perspective that you choose affects how much information you can offer the readers and how emotionally engaging you can make your story.
