Good With Dragons - ponderings
I've been fortunate enough to have some people review my angsty fantasy gay romance story "Good With Dragons," and I'm very grateful. :) One thing I do find curious, though, is that everyone who reviewed it seemed to feel that the couple were apart for most of the story. And I felt that way when I wrote it, too, because a lot of time passes when they're apart. But going by word count, they are together for about fifty percent of the story. Actually, I think it's more than that, but I've estimated instead of being extremely scientific about calculating it. :) Anyway, isn't that interesting? Readers probably mentally estimated the time spent apart instead of the length of scenes. I wonder if there's some sort of writing law or application here, such as 'time flies when you're having fun,' perhaps?
