Hey @thewirelessblade,

Great question! Just so you know, though, we do have a max tagging limit of 12 people per post unless you have moderator permission. ūüôā¬†https://storyembers.org/forums/topic/forum-guidelines/

To answer your original question, if your story is moving too fast, you probably don’t have enough Sequels for the number of Scenes you have. K.M. Weiland has a helpful post outlining the difference between these two types of scenes here:¬†https://www.helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com/structuring-your-storys-scenes-pt-1/ and you can read her entire series on this subject here:¬†https://www.helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com/how-to-structure-scenes/ The terminology is confusing since ‘scene’ and ‘sequel’ are often used to mean something else, but I think looking at your use of these two types of scenes in your story will help you clarify your pacing.
