About this Episode

There’s a writing skill that many novelists struggle with. It’s something that read-a-chapter-a-month critique groups often miss: Pacing.

We all know that you need to start off with an inciting incident — at least by the end of the first chapter. But after there, it can get a bit fuzzy.

Techniques to try:
1 - Beat Sheets
2 - Varying sentence structure

3 - Shuffling scenes

Thanks for listening! I'll be back next Monday with more rambling ideas about writing.
