Non-linear Storytelling (Tags)

Non-linear Storytelling

Description

This tag refers to the writing style where the progression of the story takes place in a non linear fashion, with events from different times in the time line being written in a jumbled format to generally increase the mystery elements. This tag is different from the flash back tag, in the sense that the sudden non linearity can be due to a future event suddenly being brought up, and not just a past event.
