Not to hijack another thread (about a poetic prologue) that got me reviving an idea I had a while back. I've got a mothball smelling piece of work that contains six or so chapters where, in each chapter, I've gotten a little too florid, self-indulgent and too (to my own mind) purple with my prose for general consumption. I'm quite sure it'd be off-putting for anyone wanting to blitz through the pages. So I made a mission of clarifying/ rationalising those chapters and rather than deleting the elements that I figured too pretentious; I gathered them up and moulded them into mini, backward facing summaries (laden with the flamboyance I'd extracted and definitely overcooked). The notion being to have a breather between chapters and at the same time reaffirm the story's most recent events. Also to have it appear optional, I'd intended the summary be set in a different more script style font and greyed to fifty percent taking up less than a page. If I could liken the idea to anything, it'd be a cross between a chorus in a song and the three minute recap you get when watching a fresh episode of a weekly drama. Always with a mind to continue with the project at some point I did set it aside when I felt my creativity slipping and to be honest also felt it a bit of a chore (but doable with encouragement) to maintain the effort. I'd like a little feedback on the idea and also to know if it's ever been done before?
