Q: Hey Bella! I really love your Youtube channel! I’ve been working on a wip of mine, and I’ve noticed that the pacing is just too quick. Do you have any tips for slowing things down a little, or vice versa? Thank you 🙂

A: Hi! Generally, if the pacing is too quick, you’re not giving us enough information, description, or interactions. I typically find that when reading, the pacing is far too quickly if the author is using more telling than showing – since telling something can take a sentence where showing will take a paragraph or even a scene. Ultimately, check with your CP or beta readers and ask what they think is missing.
