It's too complicated

Showing vs telling seems to be a common concern for many writers. It’s not that they can’t write to show or that they don’t write well. The issue is typically a lack of awareness regarding when it’s okay to tell and when showing is required. If you’re not confident about your show-abilities, this guide is for you.

Show versus Tell will help you find instances of telling, determine which can stay in place, and know how to transform the rest into descriptions that will invite readers into the narrative.
