12/13 Day 2 of Fiction: Show, don’t tell

Daily Warm Up: Write the copy for a cereal box so that someone would actually want to buy this exciting new flavor.

Today we’re going to look at a super important skill in fiction and creative non-fiction. In fact, some might call it THE skill: Showing, Not Telling.

The problem is that “show don’t tell” is vague. It doesn’t really help you know what to write. So today we’re going to do a PearDeck together which will help you practice this skill.

If you’ve had me for English 10 or English 10H, you’ve seen versions of this PearDeck before, but it’s still worthwhile! 🙂
