Hump Day is like Back Story

Happy Hump Day! Yes, it’s Wednesday. And you know what that means – halfway through the week. Bring on those obnoxious commercials where the camel walks around asking everyone in their cubicles what day it is. When someone finally guesses Hump Day, the camel laughs. Yeah. Silly.

Anyway, I just read a guest blog by the fabulous Tiffany Reisz. She talks about back story and how it can weigh down the beginning of a book. Often by Hump Day, we get weighed down with work but we can see the end of the week. Somehow (probably because I have not had all my caffeine yet) these 2 items related in my mind.

What is the point of this post? Other than one should always drink caffeine before writing, you ask? Well, it’s that today is Hump Day. Celebrate. And remember if you’re writing a book, be sure to craft in backstory without going into info dump mode.

As Bugs Bunny would say, that’s all folks! And if you want to read the article by Tiffany Reisz, click here.
