Pacing report

1 Comments

The Pacing Report identifies the slower paced parts of your manuscript, such as introspection and backstory (some descriptive passages are caught, too). 

Slow paced paragraphs are highlighted in bold.  Active sections, such as dialogue and character action, are not highlighted.

Good writing includes both faster paced and slower paced sections, so  your story should contain both highlighted and not-highlighted sections of text. 

However, introspection and backstory are better 'sprinkled' than 'dumped'.  Be careful if you have many paragraphs or pages of highlighted text.
