To be more precise, I am talking about your primary character(s) thinking. I love prose and try to use it. But the fact is that seeing the world through the eyes of a character is a very powerful tool.
Part of making your story realistic is to have the right information about a place or event.
What is Backstory?
It is a tool writers use to acquaint readers with a character, place, or event. Instead of recreating the entire situation or character’s history, you can tell or have your characters fill in the details. This can take place in a few paragraphs or scenes.
How Do I Use the Readers’ Imagination?
While it isn’t rocket science, it isn’t all that easy either. I wish I could tell you that there is one simple formula that fits all genres and all books. There are principles that fit, but applying them differs from book to book, genre to genre.
Writing a Bible-based novel can be successful or risky. But if you use these simple guidelines you should be able to appeal to a large audience.

Should I Write a Series or a Single Book?
I have written single books and I’ve written books within a series. The answer really depends on you. Some people only want to write one or two books at the most. And that is fine.
For such people I would encourage them to think about multiple books, series or not.
But then I learned the trouble with narration. It could detract from a story.
you need imagination to tell a story. And story telling is basically the ability or act of writing down or vocally relating your imagined or true story. Again, as children you probably did this with your friends. For example, girls do it with their doll houses and boys might do it with their toy trucks, etc.
