A good story is a “constructed reality,” and this is no less true of non-fiction than of fiction.

Structure works on the macro level of story, while pacing works on the micro level. Both together serve to carry the reader smoothly through the story like a whitewater rafter who has lost his paddle, and must trust you to get him safely through the rough bits.
