Back in June, I wrote an article called 3 Ways to Show, Not Tell and one of the questions I received was, “Is there a time when it’s appropriate to tell?” And my answer is, Yes! Of course there is a time when telling over showing is appropriate.
You’ve heard it a hundred times, if not a thousand: show, don’t tell. But do you know what that really means? Almost every writer struggles with this concept at one point in their writing career. But once you learn the difference, and put it into practice, you'll be amazed at how quickly you can bring your readers into your writing.
