Mark’s talk is called, “Keeping Pace: Understanding and working with the elements that make readers eager for the next paragraph, page, incident.”
If we define PACE as the reader’s eagerness to keep going, we can then figure out what factors contribute to their experiencing of text, and why and how and when to control these factors. The goal is to better understand why the good work you’re already doing works, so you can do more of it, more intentionally and more often.
