I'm calling it that for want of a better title, but I'm here to ask advice on a problem I have which makes my narrative and passages sound like they're from a short story rather than a novel. It's only when re-reading past chapters that I notice this, and it's because it takes me roughly six hours to write 1,000 words and consequently I'm not getting a true sense of the pace; writing length vs reading length. Problem is I can't put my finger on the problem. Am I missing internal dialogues and thoughts, scene setting, exposition? I just don't know, but it's almost as though one moment (and I don't mean scenes) follows the other too rapidly. Or to put it another way, it's like I'm writing scenes which need to be paced slowly, as though they're action scenes. It could be that I'll find myself fixing this pacing during re-writes and edits, without even thinking about it - almost organically and instinctively, but as I've never reached that stage before I can't be sure. Maybe I need to post a chapter to allow people to get a better idea of what I mean, but I'm reluctant to do so as I've promised myself this one is staying in my head as much as possible. I talked and posted pieces from my last attempt so much that it all but ruined my desire for it. Any tips and advice much appreciated.
