No matter how good your story idea, if your pacing is off, the story goes flat and your reader feels the real world pulling them out.
In this podcast, the ladies talk about different levels of pacing – by sentence, by scene, and by act. They also discuss some of the different pacing aspects that are often key for the beginning, middle, and end of the book.
Jess notes the similarities of writing fight scenes and intimacy scenes, as well as some of the common issues she encounters when getting a manuscript.
