"You gave valuable info regarding the use of telling and showing and now better understand when to use them in my writing." — Gerry Jove

Show, don't tell has become a cliché - but there’s truth as well as a caution.

2) Transitions and Word Count: Where telling really helps
3) Better Descriptions: Telling that a reader won't skip

5) Showing More: Pulling a reader into a scene
6) Deep Viewpoint: Showing a character's inner world
7) Showing and Telling: Mixing it up
8) Writing to your Strengths
9) Summing it all Up
