One of the most common pieces of writing advice is that you should show instead of telling, but what does that really mean? By judiciously applying this piece of advice, your writing will be more vivid and engaging.
- Know when to show. The real secret behind “show, don’t tell” is that you should show most of the time. The idea here is that showing is more interesting and draws the reader into the story, and most of the time, this is true. However, on occasion, you need to efficiently impart information such as getting someone from one place to another or explaining something in a character’s background. At such times, to show instead of telling would actually bog down the narrative, and telling is actually best. Therefore, keep in mind that while 80 to 90 percent of the time you should indeed be showing, there are things you also need to just tell your reader and move on from.
