I'm looking for some general advice, this time. How much talking should there be in a novel? I've noticed that my story is quickly becoming more than fifty percent dialogue- is this a bad thing? The other thing is that my dialogue has a tendency to slow the pace of the novel- is a slower-paced book less enjoyable than a fast-paced one? I anticipate that the pace will increase once both sides are fully drawn up and the action sequences start.
