Telling, not Showing
[Hvis du hellere vil diskutere på dansk, så kig her]
As I have already confessed to my Danish readers why I am so busy right now, it might be a good idea to earn up to the rest of the world as well: I have joined an online writing course.
And why have I made up my mind to tell you? Obviously, I have some sort of sinister motive.
Advantage one: I don´t have to beat about the bush and try to remember whom I told what etc..
Advantage two: I can exploit it, not only on my new, Danish writing blog, but also in here (exploit you, really.)
So what do I need your help for this week, dear reader? I want you to tell me what you think about the principle "showing, not telling".
Who decided that that was the only correct way to write fiction?
When? (my back was probably turned - it usually is)
And if you should feel inspired to write your own blog posts with discussions, literary examples or authors who are famous for one or the other, please come back and tell me. I really want to know what you think!
