Show vs. Tell

I’m in the process of editing my WIP. As I wrote the rough draft, I found I told a huge chunk of the story. Which can not stay if I want to story to be readable by others.

I’ve been reading all I can of show vs. tell so I can recognize what is good and what is bad. The story gets to the point I don’t see what a reader sees. I see my version I made up ages ago, so I have to learn to only look at the words. Not an easy task at times.

I want to share a post I came across.

The examples are wonderful. I admit I wasn’t familiar with this author before I found her blog. I am definitely adding some of these books on my TBR list.
