Pacing in Scenes and Narratives

Lecture no. 19 from the course: Writing Great Fiction: Storytelling Tips and Techniques

Pacing in Scenes and Narratives

Taught by Professor James Hynes | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Every narrative has a tempo. Some stories are short, while others are long. Some move at breakneck speed, while others linger over every detail. Discover how to strike the right balance between length and time (the pacing), between length and detail (the density), and between scene and summary.
