Story Element #6: PACING

Story Element #6: PACING
1, 2, buckle my shoe
3, 4, shut the door
5, 6, pick up sticks
7, 8, lay them straight
9, 10, do it again!

Careful, now. PACE yourselves! Learning how to pace your story and your page turns (though you really have no final control over the page turns) will improve your writing skills. Go ahead. Be the pace car.

Here's you list of picture books that teach pacing:
  1. Halloweiner by Dav Pilkey
  2. The Shelf Elf by Jackie Mims Hopkins
