Often, we feel we need to deliver all of our carefully crafted worldbuilding in big chunks. We want the reader to know everything because we’re excited and we know each piece of information plays a role in the story.
But… that can overwhelm readers in what’s called an ‘info dump.’ So, how do you balance sharing details of your world without overwhelming readers? Hannah and Leah discuss how to balance worldbuilding with narrative in fiction.
