In my pursuit for fast-pace, progressing the plot, and avoiding back story while not straying too far from imagination, I found my selected formats. The novel and script.
I enjoy the novel for the purpose of imagination and not limiting the story to certain specifications. However, at times I feel novels have too much back story that the reader can lose sight of the plot. Everything can be said with less words.
With any script only what is seen or heard is present. Although this allows the plot to advance at an average of 1 minute per page, I find myself missing those moments of background and how it relates towards the characters' livelihood.
Utilizing both tactics, Distant Fantasy, tells a tale by informing only what the reader needs to know to progress the plot within each novel.
