The Work of Words Lesson Two

Show, Don't Tell

In Lesson 2, we want to remind you that you are part of a bigger family. An important family. A valuable family. You are part of the military family. We have a unique culture and community all our own. We have experienced things only 10% of the total U.S. adult population has. 

This also means we have our work cut out for us when we write our stories. We need to offer our work by showing, not telling, and this week we consider the best practices to cultivate this within creative nonfiction writing.
