This week we are learning to show the reader and not just tell them.
Writing “she was sad” would tell me what she was feeling. Instead, show me what sad looks like. Is sad staying in bed and not getting dressed? Missing work? Not taking a shower and eating only potato chips?
Tell: He was angry. How can you show anger instead? Is anger throwing pots? Or is anger not talking?
Tell: She was scared. Instead of writing that, how would you show fear?
Choose one of the prompts above or think of your own emotion or adjective. Take fifteen minutes to write a piece that shows us that feeling, then post it in the comments.
What emotion do you think other people have tried to show?
