Information Dumps

One of the things I learned about sometime during my reading weeks this past summer was the information dump. Information dumps occur when a writer is trying to get out a lot of material readers need to know about. They slow down the ol' narrative flow and bore the living daylights out of readers.

I'm afraid that's what I've been dealing with this past week--an information dump. One way to make these things less dumpy is to break them up with dialogue. Preferably, of course, witty repartee. Witty repartee that moves the story along and doesn't just bear the burden of the dump.

Yeah, we'll have to see how that works for me.

I like Perfect World Gold very much. Since I entered into this game, I learnt skills to earn Perfect World Silver. Thanks to Perfect World money let me know a lot of friends. Buy Perfect World Gold is my habit, and I get some cheap Perfect World Gold from my friends and Internet. Buying pw gold is very convenient.
