I am currently writing a book about my bipolar mother.
She tried to physically harm me at two and a half which is where her illness started. I need feedback on where in my book I should write this - at the start (chronologically correct), middle or end?
(See my hub Living with a bipolar parent for basic back story.)
Thanks for feedback!
it depends on how you are writing your book - is it a chronological story or not?
Also, depends on where you start your story - does the story start with your birth, graduation, marriage?
You could put it in when you first learn about it (cuz you probably don't have a memory of it, so...maybe putting it in when you're 2 1/2 wouldn't make sense.)
Short answer, it all depends. Make the best decision you can, for now, and you can always change it if it doesn't work.
