"Hitherto I have recorded in detail the events of my insignificant existence; to the first ten years of my life, I have given almost as many chapters"(Hamilton 171).

This was an example of Narrative Pace. It's from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. I think the reason Hamilton used this example is because it paints the picture right there for you that the voice is skipping over something, in other words, omitting the next phase in her life, and moving to the next. It was a good example, but I think Hamilton should have used another that wasn't so straightforward. I think she should have also used an example that made the reader figure out on their own what was being talked about, and what is going to be omitted, and what might happen next.
