Embedded in the stories we write are numerous smaller stories—the ones characters tell themselves about the lives they’ve lead and the people they’ve known. We will examine memory as a vital tool for character development, and we will look at the ways that memory can influence nearly every other element of a work of fiction, including structure and plot.
