FFC #68 - The coming of novels

I agree it's harder. I've actually found it useful to use film as examples when asking myself how to show something, simply because they have to show it (most of the time).

I think the simple way to beat show vs tell is a shift in thinking. I find it's easier if I consider how to show worldbuilding through the mere presence of setting, or character traits through interaction and reaction, or decisions through results. That sort of thing.

FFC #68 - The coming of novels

Show vs Tell in writing has always been hard to me because I'm more familiar with the term when it comes to writing for film (where it's very literal). Getting character, worldbuilding, etc. across through writing without just explaining it through dialogue or narration is more tricky and harder to keep yourself to task on because just plain explaining it is also more acceptable in writing, I feel.

~TAF, who isn't sure if he'd ever stop fan fiction writing simply because it comes without the pressures of vetting it

C3V Exclusive NHSD Release

Cool figure and name. Single version of 10th Reg. I am happy to see an Aquilla cowboy. Great job.
Are there any custom cowboy squads that bond with lawmen? Are there any custom outlaws under Utgar?

C3G Interview - GamerHusband

Man, I couldn't believe it when I first came to this blog & read Davidlhls was the author. I was like Not only is @GamerHusband back but david also .

Then I was 50% let down.

Great to see GamerHusband back to enjoying C3G & his awesome battle reports. Great interview. Not really 50% let down, as it always good to reminisce the old days & the people that make them memorable.

P.S. you missed an "l" in davidlhls. Not that I could get the "@" working for him anyway. :/
