Reader Question: When is the best time to reveal a character’s backstory?

Where do I place the backstory? Consider the fact that stories start way before the inciting incident for characters unless it’s about Adam and Eve’s Garden of Eden.

Flashbacks and recalls are means to reveal backstory.

My personal structure adds backstory in act 1 and act 2.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
