Showing vs. Telling
In last month's Creative Skills Developement class, we learned the importance of showing and not telling when we write. We put this idea into practice during an assignment in Week Three. The assignment had us re-writing sentences showing what was happening instead of telling.
This class focuses on the visuals in a story or short film. The use of snow globes is the main visual tool we have been discussing. VTW has allowed my writing to become stronger in its visual descriptions. Going from Week One to Week Three, there is a notable difference in the descriptions in my stories.
I will be able to take what I've learned about showing vs. telling and apply it to my future classes. The majority of courses involve writing stories and showing vs. telling plays a major role in each of them. One course that sticks out is Literary Techniques and Story Development. Just the title of the class makes me think that there will be a large focus on showing vs. telling.
Looking back, I can safely assume that mastering this technique will one day jump start my career in the Creative Writing Industry.
