Day 19s simple task: Day 6 of a book a month

What’s this all about simple tasks? http://wp.me/p5y43M-3z

You’ve gotten so far! Your story is well on it’s way to engaging readers and publishers everywhere. So let’s put in the last thing to hook them. Backstory is important but can overwhelm people if you have it too early on or all in one paragraph. That’s why we are going to leave a trail of seeds through the book that hints at whatever tragic (or happy) backstory your characters have. Today, start adding those sprinkles. Can they go stiff at the sound of dog? Dose someone get upset over a random statement? What makes your characters tick? Start weaving that into your plot.
