Show vs Tell: What Does It Mean?

Knowing how to master show vs tell in your stories will not only make you a better writer, but your stories will be easier to read. Trust me, your readers will appreciate you more.

Show vs Tell

Here’s a tip:

Don't overload your readers with TMI, especially at the beginning of your story. It's easy to get sidetracked and ramble on and on when you're writing. Sometimes you just get lost in your own story and can't help yourself. This is why, in my opinion, it's important to use bullet points for each chapter so you know what it's going to be about before you start writing; this will help you stay on track and data-dump a bunch of crap that you'll probably end up cutting out of your story when you go back to edit the first draft.
