First of all, hi, I'm new here I've been reading this forum for some days now, and only today did I have the courage to register. I think I'll start posting soon in other threads, but at the moment I have a question which gnaws at me. Sort of I guess it's all right if I post a small excerpt from a book, right? The rules say it's OK if it's a small quote. Hopefully it is. If not, I'll remove it. The question is: is that an info dump? I've read a lot about them, but I'm not so good at detecting them myself. I don't want my work to be riddled with info dumps and such. Personally, it doesn't bother me, at all. It's [sort of] short and interesting. What do you think?
