Show-Don’t-Tell is something we hear a lot about as writers, and yet many struggle to apply it. Why? Because while most understand the basics of show-don’t-tell, not every writer can spot descriptive opportunities where deploying it the right way will draw readers in.
Becca and I have studied description extensively and trained ourselves to spot these opportunities by adopting what we call a Show-Don’t-Tell Mindset. To help you do the same, we’ve created a recorded webinar on our process: Think Like a Story Expert: How to Engage Readers Using Psychology & the Show-Don’t-Tell Mindset.
In it, I’ll show you how we identify details that can connect the story dots for readers, add depth, and how leveraging psychology will help you connect readers to your characters so they care and become invested in what happens next.
This isn’t a long webinar, but it’s packed with takeaways to help you strengthen your stories. So if you’d like help in this area, give it a watch, and happy writing!
