If Life is Timing, then Storytelling is Pacing.

“I try to tell a story the way someone would tell you a story in a bar, with the same kind of timing and pacing.” Chuck Palahniuk

On Writing: Since I’m exploring the idea of lengthening my category romance, Bringing Delaney Home, to single title length, I thought I’d take a second look at the pacing of the m/s before deciding which plot points and scenes I can add. I did find a few chapters I might try cutting into two. These can work really well if that leaves a chapter ending on a hook, and since two of the chapters I would divide contain turning points, I think this should definitely work. I’ve got to run out to shop for running shoes with Sensitivegirl, but I”ll spend some time this afternoon looking at this.
