Ideas for Stories Concerned with “The Past”

The Past as the Concern — All the objective characters are concerned with the past.

For example, an unsolved murder for which new evidence comes to light, a great-grandmother whose diary has just been discovered, a “skeleton in the closet” of a famous family, the story behind a buried treasure, etc. Exploring what has already happened will illustrate The Past as an Objective Story Concern.
