I am kinda waiting for the concern trolls to talk about the fact that he's excited they're blowing up forests with TNT. Other than that, how cool is that!?My dad taught my brothers and I to play guitar. I didn't have the drive to continue but my brothers did. He taught them just enough and then he'd make excuses to not spoon feed them the next chord but left instructions on how they could figure it out. The twins spent HOURS trying to figure it out by themselves. It was pretty cool.
Good stuff, Jael, but which (show or tell) do I TRY to do more? Neither! I try to do whichever best expresses the story of that moment at that moment. If that results in a “perfect” (?) balance between showing and telling, fine. If the story is imbalanced toward one or the other, fine. The question isn’t whether I do, or should do, more of one or the other but whether I have told the story in the clearest, most compelling, most interesting way I possibly could.Like? 0
