    Creative Writing Narration and Dialogue Balance?

    Does anyone have a rough idea of how much narration and dialogue we should have? I included about 60/40 narration/dialogue for my school trials and I'll be honest, I thought it was too much dialogue and my teacher said so too, but it was all quite useful in setting the scene and building up characterisation imo.

    to be honest it doesn't really matter, just has to be done well. My tutor told us to just stay away from dialogue as much as possible as it is difficult to write really good dialogue at our level. But if you dialogue works well then use it
