Filler Chapters

I’m a new-ish writer.  I’ve been working on a new series, and have found that I didn’t explain a few things well.  As a result, I’ve had to go back and make filler paragraphs, and even chapters.  I find this to be Dullsville.  I have been working on several insertions for the current novel I’m working on and it feels like it is sucking the life out of me.

It’s totally my fault though for assuming that everyone can experience my world like I do.  I need to explain it a bit better, so I’m plodding through the writing.  I only have one more chapter or so to fill.  Then I can start work on the story again.  I guess it is all part of the process.  I’m not sure though, as I’ve only written one book in its entirety in my life.

Besides putting in fillers, AKA “better explanations”, I have enjoyed writing this book much more than my first one.  I feel it is a better story with a lot more creativity.  I’m about 2/3 of the way done with it.  I can’t wait to tell you about it!

Have any of you had to put in loads of better descriptions?

How have you coped?
