8/26 Show, don’t Tell

Today we’ll talk about “showing vs. telling” and I’ll give you an intro to the basic skills connected to SHOWING (direct action, direct dialogue, character thought, imagery).

For today’s short assignment, please write 250 words (max) where you practice those skills to SHOW a scene. Remember it will have to be a small scene. Tomorrow we’ll do some practice with those scenes together.

For now, here’s a quick glance at a “telling” scene turned into “showing.” (FYI you can click on the picture to make it bigger/easier to read).
