Quote of the Day – Anton Chekov



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.
