Pacing in Writing

Pacing in Writing | Litteris | Scoop.it

When I was a child, a piano teacher let me play to my heart’s content without worrying about such details as tempo and timing. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the best approach, which may be why those lessons were short-lived. It wasn’t until adulthood, when I studied vocal music, that I learned to pace myself.

 

Pacing, whether in music or writing, is one of the methods by which we organize the creative flow. Order prevents these creative expressions from falling flat and helps improve their impact.

Scene Pacing: Balancing the "Beats"

Scene Pacing: Balancing the "Beats" | Litteris | Scoop.it

Since the advent of what I call the Dialogue Revolution (the trend toward using few or no attributions and replacing with "beats"), I too struggle to create a pleasing flow to the story. Too many sentences of describing action, thought or emotion and the story stalls. Too few and readers get confused. What's a writer to do?
