Writing dual timelines – Author Toolbox Blog Hop

Great tips!

Lyndsey's Book Blog

Hello friends! Welcome to the October edition of the Author Toolbox Blog Hop created by the fabulous Raimey Gallant. This will be the last Author Toolbox of 2017, as we take a mini break for NaNoWriMo and the holidays. So make the most of all this incredible insight and hop along to as many of the other blogs as you can!

This month, I’m taking you guys along on another research mission for my current WIP, COCKLE SHELLS AND SILVER BELLS. After outlining the plot months ago, I’ve now decided to add a second timeline set forty years earlier, using a secret diary as the mode of delivery for my additional POV. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’ve been reading everything I can on the subject, and I thought some of you might be interested in what I’ve learned.
