Info Dumping - #2 of the Ten Most Common Mistakes

November 5, 2019

Barbara Wallace and Debby will discuss one of the biggest mistakes rookie writers make... info dumping.  To be fair, info dumping ins't limited to beginner writers, but the experienced writer usually knows when the words need to hit the cutting room floor.   Back-story, Transition scenes, and world building are three of the common dumping grounds.  Barbara and Debby will discuss how information can be woven through-out the story

  • Too much too quick vs picking and choosing what is important
  • Let the story play out like and onion layer after layer
  • What would be important to the character in that scene right now
  • Sometimes you do have to catch the reader up in the case of time traveling...6 months later...
  • Science fiction tends to have the most info dumping with respect to technology

May you be inspired, feel empowered, and B. Well.
