    I Realized Something

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Leaka, Jun 7, 2009.

    For the longest time that I have been writing I always thought I was writing show.
    But I recently got told by two people, that my writing is tell.
    I don't understand how my writing can be tell because I don't tell people right flat out what they are feeling or what they are doing.
    Maybe in certain area where it is necessary.
    Has anyone had this problem before?
    Where they couldn't tell if their writing was show or tell.
    How can you tell?
    How can you fix it?

    There is already a current thread on this: Show but do not tell?
