New Creative Writing Post up at Thought Catalog: The Graceful Flashback

DT73

In part two of my series on Celeste Ng’s debut novel Everything I Never Told You, I talk about different ways to use flashback in your writing.  There’s also a writing prompt at the end if you’re so inclined.

P.S. this painting is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s online collection.  It’s George Calem Bingham’s “Fur Traders Descending the Missouri,” and it seemed appropriate enough for a post about flashbacks and destinations.  I do think “Look at that Unhappy Dog” is a better title, though.
