Showing your reader instead of simply telling your reader can make all the difference in a written piece. When authors "show", they paint a picture in the reader's mind that is so vivid the reader can imagine themselves in the story. The traits of idea development, word choice, and voice are carefully woven together to create this image. As you read over the next few weeks, try to find good examples of showing (either a published author you're reading, or from your own writing). Add these to this blog post. Be sure to include the author and text title. In the meantime, here is a short video that illustrates how important word choice is...enjoy!
