I hear that one of the biggest rules in writing is “show, don’t tell.” Don’t tell us “Jake has a crush on Jenny.” Show us, “For the whole class period, Jake has been staring at Jenny from across the classroom. Every time she looks his way his heart leaps, he buries his head into his book, and doodles her name in his notes.”
See the difference? It’s much more fun to show too.

Thanks for stopping by! A few things about me. I've been an L.A. local for my whole life, and I spend my days working here at front desk of theOffice. My number one goal here is to fill this blog feed full of things that will motivate and inspire writers, and to give you all an occasional laugh. I'm a lover of science and technology, geek culture, and video games. If anything inspires you as a writer, I'd love to hear about it!
