I have a busy week ahead of me, but I wanted to share this great post I found that talks about show vs tell! As a writer we hear that alot, probably even say it ourselves, but how do we explain that? How do we share that with others? Writers In the Storm have Margie Lawson there sharing that. It is amazing.
It boils down to paying attention to the words you put around your characters actions. The words you use to describe the action itself. By using power words, visuals and things that can make you “feel” the action, you will be showing. Any time the action feels flat, like you are just hearing about it, or just know it was done that would be telling.
I took much from that short article and I hope it helps you as well! What did it teach you? Did you better understand show vs tell? How do you see them now? Happy writing!
