In a persuasive essay, you might state your opinion on a particular subject, and then you would elaborate on it, sometimes in very great detail. Does this work just as effectively in fiction, or should this be avoided at all costs? Can you tell what happened in a particular incident, and then in the next paragraph, show it in great detail? Would this make for bad writing if it was done frequently throughout the story? I feel like I have to summarize what events I want to show, before I can actually show them. But the thing is, I feel like it would be decent if it went into the actual body of the story. Am I on the wrong track here? P.S. I have been making a lot of threads lately. I apologize if that's annoying or overwhelming.
