I have a question pertaining to style in short stories and long short stories. To what extent can you have a narrator describe events in general rather then specific? What I mean is, is it acceptable to have a narrator describe an event and a conversation without specifically recounting the conversation, or should he always recount the conversation and actions of the individual characters themselves? I've found myself writing a psychological piece with an unreliable narrator. I'm quite a ways in and I'm realizing that the narrator has been describing conversations rather then showing them. I have a feeling that is bad.
