Summary

To tell or not to tell, that is the ultimate question...

Writing a novel is all about showing the reader things they've never seen before. And since there is no movie screen, the only way to do this is through imagination and lots of it. This book includes places and location, actions, seasons and weather, and more. Remember, give your reader the pieces and let them put it together inside their head.

Poorly written.

I really wish I hadn’t waisted my free sample on this book. The example sentences are poorly written, my 12 year old daughter could have given better fictional examples of how to show don’t tell. And the overall teaching nature just isn’t there, it feels rushed and has a lack of thought into the book. I am thoroughly disappointed in the fact that this seams more like the authors just wrote it to try and advertise for themselves and not as a true help book. Or their writing is just this poor and it give me no desire to read any fictional stories they have written. “They have written several books because they want to be famous,” really? True writers, write because writing itself and the story are apart of their soul, not because they want to be famous. Writing simply because you want to be famous definitely shows, and it shows a lack of thought and feeling being put into this book. Overall: 1 star. Performance: (if by performance you mean the narrator, then he did great) but the piecing together of the read clips could have been better) 4 stars. Story: poorly written, 1 star.
