So, I've been toying with the idea of writing something for a while. Nothing grand with no aims other than something to do for myself and maybe with a friend or two.
I have a bit of an idea for a canvas of a realm or two and it's backstory. The story I was thinking of writing wasn't about characters who are directly involved with what's going on but this stuff goes on as a backdrop to their story. What I'm wondering is whether it's more engaging / interesting to start their story before things in the background descend into anarchy or after things have fallen and then settled a bit and then take off again.
