As we pursue our dreams of having a novel published and sitting on a bookshelf, most of us are trying to improve our craft and become better writers. I spend a fair amount of time pouring over books about the craft. When I wrote my first novel, I had never heard of show, don’t tell until it was in a note on my manuscript by an editor. That’s when I started searching the internet for something to read on what was a mystery to me at that time.
One of my favorite reads on it is, Understanding Show, Don’t Tell by Janice Hardy. I think she breaks it down and makes it simple to understand for any newbie in the field. I don’t know about you fellow writers, but I plan on reading, growing, learning, and taking any help that I can get. I want to do the stories that play out in my mind justice as I transfer them to paper. I believe this book has helped me grow and become better, not perfect, but better.
If you have a recommendation on a good book to read about show, don’t tell, drop a link below, or if you want to share what you’ve learned along the way, share it as well. I’m all ears and willing to listen.
Much Love to Y’all,
