Hi guys. This is my first thread here. I did a Google and Forum search for similar topics but I didn't really find anything.... mostly because I didn't know what to search for. So maybe you guys can help. I'm in the process of editing my book manuscript, trying to get it ready to go to a publisher and as I've been doing my read throughs, I've noticed that the middle third lags quite a bit. I remember some advice I got once that said if you find a part of your story boring, your reader surely will. The first and last thirds are awesome (to me at least) but the middle just kinda gets bogged down in exposition and explanation. My problem is that it is a fantasy story so most of the world building goes on in this boring part of the book. It's too important to the story to just be cut and I can't figure out how to add it all and keep the plot interesting and not dull.So, anyone who's got experience with this type of thing, through reading or writing, I could use any advice you are willing to give. What do you like to see in the middle of a story that keeps your interest? Do you have any examples I could find that might help?
