14.14: When To Tell
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary Robinette, Dan, and Howard
“Show, don’t tell,” they tell us. Except sometimes showing is not always the best thing to do. Or even the right thing to do. Sometimes we should be telling. In this episode we’ll tell you about telling. (We’d show you about telling, but we still don’t have a video feed.)
Credits: This episode was recorded by Rob Kimbro, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Pick an important scene from your work. Cut it. Now have a character transition us across where that scene used to be.
Thing of the week: The Hobbit: The Two Hour Fan Edit, by Fiona van Dahl (and MGM/New Line Cinema/Wingnut Films).
