What is A nonlinear storytelling ?

For me, the plot was always the most important part in a movie, TV series and books. If the story itself wasn’t interesting enough I got bored. I was mainly influenced by movies that have been told in a non-chronological way and I also tended to watch those movies at least once more.

So, what is actually a nonlinear story?
Nonlinear storytelling is a non-chronological way of telling a story. It means that the past, the present and the future are mixed together to tell one plot. Sometimes the story would begin with a situation that the cause for it will appear later in the story but actually happened before.

In this blog, I will write about my own research to understand better and get deeper into the “ingredients” of the nonlinear storytelling, as well as the reasons to use it, how to create one and probably many other ideas that will come along the journey.
