Tell the story out of order -- here's why & how

Here's an oldie but goodie -- a page from one of my earliest workshop handouts.

I heard from someone today who had taken a class from me in the early- to mid-2000s. He said he kept some of my handout pages pinned up for regular inspiration but now can't find them.

I rummaged a bit in my digital archives and uncovered this advice for telling stories out of order. Move up what's compelling, and bump down the backstory and introduction.
