Here's a character in McBain's musing on the local constabulary: "P'lice always say somebody done nothing a'tall, den next t'ing you know, they 'resting somebody."Are there any times when telling is better than showing?
Don't tell your friends and family that you want to be a writer; rather, show them that you are one by planting yourself in front of your keyboard and going to work . . .
can someone review my essay and edit it? I need to show not tell
Will my story will be uninteresting if the sentences are longer because of showing and don’t tell method? I remember that it said that, it best to keep the sentences shorter and simple. By doing this, it keeps the story interesting.
