The writing classes were incredibly helpful for pinpointing a couple of problems with my storytelling. The number one issue was establishing (and sticking with) a point of view. I was completely ignoring point of view, which showed.
I am also much more conscious now of pacing. Rhythm within dialogue has always fascinated me, but I ignored the bigger picture. I should also be thinking about the ebb and flow of the story as a whole. Which parts drag? Which parts zoom past?
Here's a fun fact: Sometimes I write dialogue in iambic pentameter.
Perhaps I've said too much.
