QUOTE OF THE NIGHT:
WRITING TIP from Jo Wilkins:
SHOW DON’T TELL also paints a better picture through your prose. Writing in active voice is a necessity if you don’t want your story to drag. Active voice means painting a clear picture with your words. It means showing the reader instead of telling them a story. ("I pressed my hands over my quaking stomach"—showing—vs. "I was upset"—telling—).
