How do you decide when to stay in a scene, and when to rush a reader through? Too much scene and it's impossible to tell what matters. Too much summary and the reader can't get emotionally invested. Where's the balance? We'll look at some examples of how writers have handled this question well, and do a little experimental surgery on less successful efforts to find a happy medium. We'll discuss common errors in scene and summary pacing and look to our own writing to find places to improve.
