Show, don’t tell is probably the single most-important piece of advice given to writers. But many writers struggle to understand this powerful principle or have difficulty applying it to their own work. Even experienced authors sometimes don’t grasp the finer nuances of showing and telling.
In this book, Sandra Gerth draws on her experience as an editor and a best-selling author to show you how to show and tell you when to tell.
Each chapter includes concrete examples and exercises that will hone your writing skills.
Whether you’re a novice writer working on your first story or an established author who has already learned the basics of showing and telling, this book will help you to:
Grasp the difference between showing and telling. Understand why showing is such a powerful tool. Spot telling in your own manuscript. Fix bland passages and turn them into compelling scenes.

Incorporate backstory into your novel without resorting to telling. Recognize telling in dialogue. Avoid overshowing and swamping your readers with too many details.
