When I was writing Sam and The Sea Witch, I realised I had a lot to learn about writing a story. I read much about how this should be done and I have tried to use what I have learned in my writing. I want to share it with you. If you read what I have posted on my blog, http://samandtheseawitch.wordpress.com/ you will see how it helped me to recognise the difference between showing the reader and telling the reader what is happening. It is quite long, so I've broke it down. I'll post the second part of this document on show and tell next week. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
