I'm an info-dumper! I dumped through-out most of chapters 1, 2 and even some of 3. It's played a huge part in the awkwardness between myself and MS Word but no matter how I try, I can't seem to clean it up. When your world is set a few hundreds years into the future, you obviously have a fair amount of history to cover. So how do you avoid your protagonist harping on over 3 chapters about 300 years of history? It's made my novel feel stale, immature and irritating. Without that information, the story is suddenly missing a huge chunk of it's depth. It's quite the dilemma and it's making me less grumpy Does anybody else have similar issues?
