Hello fellow writers! I am writing a book which I will be presenting so I need some advice, any advice you can give it okay. Really feeling this story but I love getting advice from people before writing. I do have three questions. 1-Can I write a chapter in between of a story where it's like a flashback chapter? I will be obviously specifying that its a flashback but yeah want to know if you all think it's correct for me to do that. 2-How many drafts should I write before submitting it officially. 3-Does anyone know of any free online program or something where I can get my story edited for grammar or spelling mistakes? Either way please give any advice you can.

    I think a flashback chapter is completely appropriate. Placing that chapter in between can be fun and original, and I'm glad that you will specify that. I came across a "flashback chapter" once, except that it was in a show, and it was the third-to-last episode. It was confusing until the very end of the episode, when I could finally understand that it was a flashback. That was one of the best shows I've ever watched, in fact! Anyways, in all, a flashback in the middle can be appropriate if it relates in away to the chapter before it or after it. For your second question - write as many drafts as you need to. Just keep reading through and editing your draft(s) until you are completely satisfied with it. If you only do one or two drafts and not read your final draft once more, you could get worried and nervous about things you suddenly remember need to be fixed. For your third question - http://www.paperrater.com/free_paper_grader is very good. Grammarly is great as well, but sadly you need to sign up for it.

    Don't forget to have a parent or friend read it to see if there any mistakes. Three brains are better than one.

    @sbuck98 Thought about that too. I think I might do it both ways and see how it goes. :)

    @mitochondrias Thanks for your insight on the flashback chapter. I defiantly will make sure it relates to the chapter before. Also, yeah thanks I was planning on writing at least 3 drafts one being the rough draft. After that I plan on somehow getting it professionally checked/edited but it costs money which is why I was asking for a free online program. Either way I'll figure it out :) Thanks for your help! :)

    @flowers2468 Sadly no one around me is interested in checking my things out. They'll read it but they always seem to be afraid to tell me if something is wrong, they think I'll get offended.
