Show; Don't Tell -- Explanation and Examples

Since I had some questions from writers concerning the first rule of writing -- Show; Don't Tell -- I found an outstanding website that provides excellent examples.

Here's the website:

I think any writer will find the examples and explanations on the website, Inspiration for Writers, immensely helpful.  


  1. I love your blog and wanted to let you know I have awarded you the Leibster Award. Check out my blog to learn more. Happy blogging!

  2. I love this blog! Thank you for creating it!

  3. Thanks -- I'm glad you find it helpful. Sometimes, I think we all just need a little review to remind ourselves of grammar rules we once knew but have forgotten, or possibly may never have learned because no one explained them or there wasn't enough time in the day to cover them. Hopefully, with these little refreshers and reminders, we can improve our writing and make it even better than it would have been. :)

  4. Yeay Yeay Yeay
    Thanks for all your wisdom I am reading here. Just discovered it but it looks like 2012 is not a happenin'
    This is my primary goal with the kids I work with as a literacy specialist in private practice.
    Tough in the TEXTING age, huh? Also, I want to find a blog that is teen friendly, and gives grammar tips.

  5. Thanks for your kind words, Kendra. If folks really want more, I can do that.

  6. Cannot access website anymore. Miss, are you aware of a new url?
