1 Way To Add Depth To Your Story

Sign Up For The Newsletter | Click HERE for the complete library of Writing Tips

Write What You FEEL

Because of reasons, I’m going to dive back into the importance of “show, not tell”.

What are the reasons? Well, I’m not going to talk about it because I don’t want to traumatize my readership, but if you hop on to my Twitter and scroll back a few days, you’ll see some nooooooooooo gifs with the hashtag #AllTheBoats.

That’s my vague reaction to what I was suffering through, and what inspired me to draft this post.

Ugh.

Moving on.

Showing, not telling is CRUCIAL for your story.

Why?

Well for me, I’m incredibly stubborn.

You can’t just TELL me to do something or TELL me to feel a certain way. Especially if I don’t respect you (and as an author our job is to build respect with our readers), I’m probably either going to NOT listen to you or very vocally demand that I get a viable explanation about why you think whatever it is is important for me to do or think.

When it comes to writing, it is your job as an author to make your readers BELIEVE in what you’re showing them.

And to make your readers believe what you believe, you have to SHOW them. You can’t just tell them what to do or to feel. If you do, then they’re not going to get very far in your story.

So, click the Continue Reading button for some tips on how to infuse more SHOW into your story so you can take your readers on a ride in a way that encourages them to keep turning the page.
