Teachers told us that in every writing and composition class
we were in.Mine sure did.
But, no one ever bothered to explain and break down what, Show
Don't Tell, actually means.
Marcy Kennedy takes you back to class and does just that.
She makes the hard to understand, easy to understand and easy
to grasp for writers of all levels.
Readers don't you to tell them a story, they want you to show them
But, yes there is always one or two, readers do not want you to show them
As a writer, you must know when enough is enough, and how to balance
description,dialogue,action, and characters,out.
Marcy Kennedy's, A Busy Writers Guide, series will help you in all areas of
your writing adventures.
Armed with such knowledge, writers are now able to create richer more compelling works of fiction for their readers.
Thank you Ms. Kennedy!
What I loved about this book was the multitude of examples Kennedy gives for every principle. This is where other craft books often fall short. I feel like I truly understand the difference between showing and telling and when to us telling rather than showing.
The appendices are helpful additions. There is a code at the back of the book to access printable versions of the resources and links to every one she mentions in the book.
This is a quick read, but I believe it will be an invaluable resource as I strive to improve my writing. A must-have for every writer's bookshelf.
I highly recommend this book. It is packed with actionable information. Easy to access information. No wading thru pages and pages of ego. Just straight up info.
I use ProWriting Aid to help me edit. After reading this book, I understand why it flags certain things and how fixing those items improves my work.
