Blogging Insights – New Format # 13

writing quote EL Doctrow

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.” — E.L. Doctorow

I think this is what it means to “show and not tell”.

What do you think?

You can tell me what you think by leaving a reply in my comments section. Better still why not write a post of your own. Just remember to tag it #blogginginsights
