Please Don’t Tell: Lessons from “The Hangover”

Posted by & filed under Blackboard, English Composition, Good Reads, How to.

I found a really great post from the Scribe Meets World blog, and I wanted to share it with anybody interested in some real-world, easily accessible examples of the creative writing rules of Showing (with a capital S) as opposed to telling (with a diminutive, lowercase t). Click here for the blog posts’ link.

PS: Also, since this is pedagogical grist for your instructional mill, I’d like to point out that¬†if an instructor wanted to require Screenwriting Tips #3 and #4 as official reading,¬†they would suddenly offer their students some additional creative writing tenants that might qualify as good “optional” material in that they would be presenting the rest of the page (or the entire blog, for that matter) for further reading–if the student so desired.
