Counteracting Bad Writing Advice (category) (e)


Charlie Jane Anders:

"One piece of writing advice gets held up as more sacred than any other: Show, don't tell. But this maxim can ruin your story-telling, if you treat it like a law. Here are five situations where telling is actually better."

  1. Your characters all know something your reader doesn't.
  2. There are too many mysteries.
  3. You have too much insane backstory.
  4. You can think of a more entertaining way to tell than to show.
  5. It gets in the way of the emotional potency of your story.
