Balancing Backstory and Action

Saturday, June 19 - 1:00 PM

You’ve breathed life into compelling characters and envisioned a plot that will keep readers turning pages. Now how do you balance exposition, description, and action in your fiction to make it all work together?

Portioning these elements effectively is often what separates good writing from great. When done well, readers may not even notice because they’re too busy being immersed in the story.  When not done as well, readers may get bored, find the pacing uneven, or long for more info.

This seminar will help writers evaluate what the story needs when and how to balance backstory and action to keep readers grounded with the pace still moving.
