I was rereading my work, trying to see if I, as a person, would like it. I realize that I put way too much information in the first few chapters, too much to process. When I say 'information', I mean Setting, little elements from that world (I'm writing sci-fi) like advertisements for future products (that's intended to sound completely ridiculous), information about the character's past and more importantly, information on 'special abilities' that three of my characters will have. Specifically, they live in a world where people having these special abilities were the norm and one of them is going to be slated to have them and I realized that right after I went into detail about how the main characters live their lives, I jump right into another information bombardment about these abilities. I want to take the excess info them away and talk about them further along the big so it doesn't turn into a huge cluster of information. Except I'm not sure what is essentiel, what will confuse the reader if I don't put it in the first few chapters, when can I bring them up in future chapters...can anyone help? Does anyone have this kind of problem?
