(Listening to - Queen - A Kind Of Magic)
I know, I know, such an informative post title.
Anyway, the thing that's causing me to "hmmm", is my novella. More accurately, it's the first person sections I have at the start of selected chapters.
The original idea was that the sections were parts of an autobiography that the main character, Mal, was writing. They serve to give a little character history and add some more humour.
The problem is, I think they may be... *shudders*... INFO DUMPS!!!
*Runs away screaming.*
*Comes back and continues the post.*
Yes, they're entertaining, and yes they add colour to the character, but I'm pretty sure I could achieve the same with an extra scene or two in the main story and not lose a damn thing.
I'm torn though, as I like the idea of the sections, despite their possibly dumpiness.
