How do people feel about having expositional elements in their chapter briefs? I’ve tended to write off story ideas that have required any material level of exposition, but maybe I’m too sensitive?


I am not entirely clear on what you are considering here. How is what you are thinking about different from providing "background information"? Or are you refer to a sort of case where part of what the chapter author would be instructed to do is include some expositing of certain story facts?

Prithee enlighten,

I can see that you are working hard trying to undermine whatever genre bets my wife and I placed -- without even knowing what they are!

tch! tch! Numpty ... be very careful! Pigfender has inherited the ability to move threads about arbitrarily ... cross him again and he’ll dump you, not on Scriv’s bottom deck ... Latte ... but in Scriv’s bilges, or as Billy Shake-y’-spear’s Prince Hambergerlet proffers, “The undiscovered country, from whose bourne no traveller returns, ....” Feck knows what or who you’ll be swimming with in those fetid, putrid waters, while having to endure this, on loop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpJ6anurfuw
Be very, very careful numpt. :shock:

If I wanted to do that, I’d hint at revisiting a previous genre.

But that would be both mean and against the rules. If I don’t insist on a new genre each time, I can’t call it quits when we’ve done them all*.

* there must be, like, only three genres left, right?!

So sorry. I already have in the wings an extended theory of genre -- your own theory of genre but on steroids.* Code name: "genreRog+" or just 'gRog' for short. Ready to spring that on you at the first sign of danger.
