We want to make our narratives as descriptive as possible tomorrow.
A great tool for helping the reader to empathise with characters
is the 'Show not tell' technique.
Can we describe how the girl is feeling without simply saying
scared, tired, sad.
How do we know she is feeling these emotions?
What might that look like as an expression, a movement, a gesture?
It would be a very boring story if we didnt add some interesting details.
She woke up. It was just a nightmare. The wolves chased her. She was scared.
Have a go at using the show not tell technique.
How can we show she is having a nightmare?
How can we show she is scared?
How can we refer to the wolves?
