Question by : Compared to thoughts and description, how much actual actions should be in a book?
The thing writers should have the most of in their book is actions, right? Then thoughts and last descriptions(description of the scenes and character’s appearance, not of the actions).
Answer by We Kept Dancing
Sure, but to me, the quantity of each of those things is determined by whether or not you need them. If a story is about psychological changes in a character, or something like that, then it’s normal to find less action than in an adventure of some sort. Just write however you want to write it, and forget about what the reader might think. Once you go back and edit, maybe you’ll find that you’ve put too many thoughts and not enough action, or too much action and not enough descriptions. In the end it’s really a matter of what you like and not how well you’ve followed the “rules”.
