Pacing Your Novel

04/01/2014 - 04/28/2014

Getting your novel to flow sometimes seems like an important task, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Learn easy steps that you can apply to almost any story to go between action scenes and slower reflective scenes and still keep the plot moving. Find ways to keep increasing tension throughout your story so you can get rid of the sagging middle and make it more. Learn how to keep those hooks grabbing your readers along the way and get simple suggestions on how to use story boards to give you a better understanding of how to pace your story. Becky will show you how to create a story board easily, even for authors who like to write by the seat of their pants.
