A Special Triptych Tapestry Tuesday:
I have been toying with the idea of writing a blog post about the difficulty I have in being able to differentiate between showing and telling then Rachael Harrie comes up with this ‘Third Campaigner Challenge: Show Not Tell‘ -so it was only natural to take part and see how I fair with this challenge.
Third Campaigner Challenge – Show Not Tell
Here are the rules for the challenge -in Rachael Harrie’ words:
“Write a blog post in 300 words or less, excluding the title. The post can be in any format, whether flash fiction, non-fiction, humorous blog musings, poem, etc. The blog post should show:
- that it’s morning,
- that a man or a woman (or both) is at the beach
- that the MC (main character) is bored
- that something stinks behind where he/she is sitting
- that something surprising happens.
Just for fun, see if you can involve all five senses AND include these random words: “synbatec,” “wastopaneer,” and “tacise.” (NB. these words are completely made up and are not intended to have any meaning other than the one you give them).”
