Your Hosts: DongWon Song, Mary Robinette Kowal, Dan Wells, and Howard Tayler Few pieces of writing advice get repeated as much as that old saw "show, don't tell." We're here to show tell you that it's not only not universally applicable, much of the time it's wrong1. Tell, don't show, especially in the early pages of the book when so very, very much information needs to be delivered2 quickly. Credits: This episode was recorded by Marshall Carr, Jr., and mastered by Alex Jackson 1 Fun fact: this advice comes to us from silent film, when it made great artistic sense to put things on screen rather than on title cards. 2 If you need new terminology, Dan uses "demonstration vs. description."
