  1. I love all the examples you’ve given in this post. I’m not surprised to read you’ve called fantasy one of the main culprits for info-dumping! I’m (slowly) writing a high fantasy novel and it’s hard not to write paragraphs and paragraphs on history. I also fall into the trap of telling for emotions – it’s a habit I’m working hard to change! Sometimes, I just write everything down and then go back to edit and cut out a LOT.

    1. Yup, fantasy is so difficult, isn’t it? I think writing it all down and cutting it once you’ve finished is a good way to do it! Sometimes you just need to tell yourself the story first, before you worry about what it’ll be like for readers. Good luck with it!
