I was recently contacted by a Troll, who I am ignoring, about my writing style. However, one of his remarks did remind me of a matter that I had been thinking about around nine months ago. This topic may have been addressed earlier, but is there a recommended balance in a story between Narrative and Dialog (i.e., 40% Narrative, 60% Dialog or some other ratio).
I personally lean toward Dialog, but find that Narrative instills more life into my stories.
Is there a general guideline for this or do we all just develop what works for us?
