I decided to begin a new thread about the show vs telling conversation, but more focused on when to show and when to tell. I try to find balance between the two, but lately I've been experiencing difficulty knowing when to show and when to tell. I am curious to how other writers make these decisions. When writing when is it important to tell and when is it important to show. Too much telling can bore a reader and too much showing can do the same. I'm trying to make sense of it all, and giving myself a bit of a headache in the process.
