Today's Tuesday Tip was sent in by Sarah Hipple, an MG/YA writer. This is Sarah's first tip on Literary Rambles, so make sure you say "hi!" and visit her shiny new writing blog.
When you're introducing a lot of back story or world building, it can help the flow to break it up with a (relevant) conversation. That way the reader doesn't get bogged down in too many dense paragraphs of text. Especially if you're in the beginning of your novel, the conversation can give the reader a little break and help the reader connect more with your characters by seeing how they behave and speak.
