However, Pacing Problems are generally one of the most forgiveable issues a story can have. Very few of them will render a work automatically unwatchable or unreadable, unless the writer has ''really'' screwed up their timing.

{{Exposition}} is closely tied to pacing. The audience needs to know what's going on and why, but explaining all this can them bored or confused. ShowDontTell might help get more exposition across while avoiding pacing problems, but if ''everything'' is shown through [[FlashBack Flash Backs]], that can be just as tiresome as hearing it all from MrExposition.

It can be tricky to get those choices right, however. Often, the audience will be faced with a glut of action (where they can't easily keep track of what's happening) or long stretches of time where it seems as though ''nothing's'' happening. The results are PacingProblems, where the general feeling is that a few more sentences here and a few less over there could have improved the whole book.
