The 8th chapter of my novel is a lot of telling. It seems that's the main flaw I have in my writing. I've done a good job in the past 7 chapters in terms of dialogue and action. This chapter though the first 1000 words are a lot of telling and setting up. No long diatribes and I'm moving from point to point, but it just seems like it may be too much padding. The rest of the 2k words are a lot of solid world building, action/dialogue. Just would like some opinions on whether 1k words of telling is too much.
