Found a great example of Show not Tell today– ‘an evolution from telling to showing’ as Sol Stein puts it:
He took a walk.
He walked four blocks.
He walked four blocks slowly.
He walked the four blocks as if it were the last mile.
He walked as if against an unseen wind, hoping someone would stop him.
I think I’m going to tape this example to my study wall.
Have you recently found some writing advice, a concrete example, or a writing book that was helpful?
