I dont know why I didnt review this book earlier. I read it right after I got it earlier this year.This little book is a great resource with 16 examples scenes. Each scene has two versions: telling and showing. After reading each scene, I spent a couple of minutes analyzing the showing version to figure out why it works so well and how I can do it. My writing has already improved.The differences in the two scene versions are obvious. Ms. Bell makes it look so simple. However, telling is easier than showing, which is why so many writers struggle.

Showing takes more time and more words, but makes for more exciting reading.The back of the book has three short writing prompts, the first of which is to rewrite a telling scene into a showing scene. I have yet to complete any of the prompts, but I do believe they will be helpful.

I learn best by doing, and even better when I have an example to which I can refer.I have already referenced this book many times while working on my WIP. I keep it in my laptop bag so I can do so at any time. (Its small size is a bonus for the way I use it.)I chose to buy the paperback of this book over the ebook because the book includes blank pages throughout for note-taking and writing practice.

As I dont have a tablet e-reader, having blank pages in an ebook is just annoying.
