What do you think "show don't tell" means in writing?


This might be a silly question but I want to know. I've been told this by two creative writing teachers. I never really understood what it meant because to me writing is telling. If you want to show a story you'd draw a comic strip. I'd appreciate another person's view on it.

    That's a good way of looking at it.
