Showing & Telling

A non fiction book by

'Show - don't tell' is such common writing advice that it's almost become a cliche. But there's a real art to doing it well. In "Showing & Telling", noted author and professor Laurie Alberts shows readers how to get the balance just right regardless of what they're writing. This must-have guide for writers covers 'Scene' and 'Summary', the two basic components of creative prose, and shows how to employ each of these essential techniques in the appropriate places within a narrative. Writers learn how to write scenes and cut exposition, but also when to compress time and summarize background information. The book also covers how to transition between showing and telling for well-balanced and more readable prose.
