SOPHISTICATED SHOW & TELL PART 1
An important part of setting the stage for your story is to convey the world of your story in a way that engages the reader and doesn’t just dump a bunch of facts in their lap. I recently read an article written by author and former ICL instructor Chris Eboch that touches on this point with some strong examples. It’s so good, we’ll be talking about it for two weeks. Let’s get started with part one.
It was really good, precise information. I've often written by telling instead of showing, and these concrete examples of showing, not telling, is really helpful to me. I'm a visual learner, and so are many many children. They have to visualize a story in order for it to be interesting, and in order for the child to want to read the story to its conclusion.
