Quick Writing Tip

From "Portable MFA in Creative Writing":

"By telling -- that is, by providing a resume or a psychological profile for your character -- you are providing information in a form that glides past the reader like a software terms-of-use agreement. By showing -- that is, by allowing the reader to observe your character in action -- you are dramatizing information, and information through action stays with the reader."

Happy Writing!

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
