WRITING

SHOW, DON'T TELL

Writers use a writing technique called 'Show, don't tell'. It is a good technique when developing a character. Rather than stating 'Detective Ted was greedy', you could show this side of him by writing about how he kept reaching for another doughnut. Perhaps his  sidekick is extremely determined.  Show her actually persisting with something, such as staying up all night reading the case notes.

 

SHOWING EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS
