Writing Goals #4

Time


Yay! Gifs work on this! :)

Anyway.......

Todays blog post is about time.

I have a problem with it.

Well, the illusion of time.

Sometimes, the story doesn't flow well because of the ultimate lack of time, or the presence of too much of it.

(Confused yet? )

Anyway....I need to have a better story flow, with times in their right places.

In a spot where I need it to progress quickly, I will have to write it as if it is progressing quickly.

In a place where I need the scene to go more slowly, I have to write accordingly.

My problem?

Writing about time is hard for me.

Which is why have to  work on it.

So......the list.....


  1. Sentence structure. It helps to make the illusion of time with how long or short the sentences are. 
  2. Description as always. :P ( But I have to be careful with my use of it. No one want to read about the smell of flowers and the way the sky looked as the main character is rolling off a cliff in a runaway water wheel.)
Yeah....I don't really care about what the sky looks like right now....

Anyway....that's my two cents.

So, this week I'm going to try to work on my timing in my stories. :)

(Sidenote: I'm sorry that I have not posted for like......whenever I last posted. I've been trying to finish my novel and removing as many distractions as possible. But now, I'm almost done, so I'll probably be posting more often!) 

Thanks all for taking the time to read this! -Saphira
