Week #2 - Watch Your Pace
Week #2 of the Writer's Circle brings us to the topic of pace. The pacing of your story is one of the most critically important aspects of the whole writing process. The article quoted in this weeks discussion was written by Deborah Chester. In it, it highlights the importance of balancing the multiple aspects of your story to keep the reader engaged and interested. Chester explains and describes the differences between Narrative Summary, Dramatic Action, Dialogue, Description, and Factual Exposition. Deborah Chester also states, "When you understand these various modes of discourse and their effects on pacing, you can use them singly or combine them for improved story flow and varied rhythm."
