I'm working on the rough draft of my first novel and have just realized that I'm "telling" too much of my main character's back story. It's important to the story as a whole, but I'd rather introduce it through action or dialogue instead of the information dump I've got going so far. But I'm stuck on HOW to go about doing that. Any suggestions? Also, I feel like I can't continue on with the rest of the story until I've got this back story situation worked out. I know this is just the first draft, and I can go back and edit later. But I'm having a really hard time moving on. Help! Thanks in advance.
