Sunday September 29

For the group on Sunday 29th, we’re going to have a look at the perennial topic of “showing and telling”. Remember, you need both, but they do different jobs.

If you don’t always grasp the difference, here are some useful links I found: 
https://emmadarwin.typepad.com/thisitchofwriting/showing-and-telling-the-basics.html
https://www.autocrit.com/editing/support/showing-vs-telling-indicators/
https://www.novel-writing-help.com/writing-a-narrative.html
https://jerichowriters.com/show-dont-tel

Anyway, our exercise for next week is to write a little scene or story in two versions, one predominantly “telling” and the other “showing”. 

Good luck. 

PS. The Stroud Short Story Competition for November closes at one minute to midnight on Sunday 29 September, so if you have anything, go for it.
