PacingTiming the activities and plot twists in a story so that the reader's interest is maintained throughout. In general, a story's pacing follows these phases: 'Introduction - Rising Action - Climax - Falling Action - Denouement'. Good authors will generally confine devices such as exposition, which is concept-heavy, to the introduction, rising action, falling action and denouement while reserving the climax exclusively for short bursts of plot-specific dialogue. See 'B5 Plot Structure', 'Transition'.
