Quick Review of Showing Not Telling

Today in class we will spend a few minutes discussing Showing and Not Telling.  This is a great skill to use for your college/personal essays.  It can take your story from boring “this then that” type of writing to allowing your reader to truly experience your story.

Some nice thoughts on Showing Not Telling: here, here, and here,

After that we will have time to work on our writing in class.

Remember, college/personal essays are due Tomorrow!
