Patriots wanted the Thirteen colonies to gain independence from Britain. They wanted to create their own laws and to form the United States of America. The Patriots wanted freedom from British rule because they didn't think they were treated well.
Pacing in regards to writing is the rate at which big events happen. For example, a story would have slow pacing if it's mostly just people having small talk. When a murder or catharsis occurs, the pace picks up. When a piece of literature or filmography has bad pacing, the transition between slow and fast pacing is all but nonexistent. When it has good pacing, the big events are molded into the story appropriately and naturally. Hope this helped.
Pretty easy actually. nobody is going to buy something they dont like if they dont need it. we all gather opinions based on what to buy at the grocery store and what brands to stay away from. more things have appeal and you're obviously going to purchase the things you enjoy. :)
