Infodumpitis n ; a condition where the writer spends seemingly vast amounts of words on artless insertation of background information. Often complicated by needless repetition of all or portions of the information in the same body of work.

  • Omigosh! Infodumpitis is my pet peeve. Pare it down folks.

  • I like to info-dump like crazy in the first draft, because it helps me keep things straight, then take nearly all of it out in the next one.
    At least, that's the plan. 🙂
