Show Notes

If you're a writer, you've likely encountered the timeless advice: "Show Don't Tell." While intended to enhance scene creation by encouraging vivid depiction over mere narration, this guidance has been misunderstood, leading to detrimental effects on otherwise strong novels.

 In this episode you’ll learn:

  2. Why balancing both creates stronger, more meaningful storytelling
  3. Mastering the art of crafting scenes that skillfully blend showing and telling.
