Good Telling The J.K. Rowling Way

Not long ago, I did a post on Telling When You Think You're Showing which I hope was helpful in highlighting some of the common mistakes we make when it comes to showing emotions.

Since Show Don't Tell is the bane of most writers' existence I figure you can never get enough info on it.

So today I direct you to Andrea Brown agent Mary Kole's blog and her post When To Tell Instead of Show because it's done way better than I ever could.

I highly recommend that you also check out A Few Things Writers Can Learn from Harry Potter which is referenced in her post, as well. It's a really clear and amazingly insightful piece!
