Does change = why?

Whoa, that’s an interesting question! Hmm, in my homework I kept saying I was curious about what happened next. But wouldn’t ‘why’ need backstory…must keep pondering…

 

Why doesn’t need backstory. You need the /why/ to keep the reader to find out the /why/. Of course, if you can’t emotionally get the reader emotionally invested in the opening scenarios, then the /why/ won’t matter.

Backstory in the opening defeats the /why/. It EXPLAINS the /why/ so now we don’t need to read more. We’d know that the butler did it, that Rhett isn’t going to frankly, give a damn, and that Dorothy has always had the ability to go home simply by clicking her ruby red heels together.
