Novel Pacing & Thrillers | LOL 058

Published: June 13, 2022, 11 a.m.

I share some thoughts on novel pacing and the common approaches to pacing I often see in the novels I really like. I also discuss some of the things I like and dislike about thrillers and relate them to the pacing discussion. Also included is a discussion of how I rank the importance of character, setting, and plot in a story. I talk about a couple books I’ve enjoyed recently, as well as a great sci-fi TV show and a wonderful documentary.
