Showing, Not Telling...  January 8, 2013 - January 31, 2013

Reading and Deliberating


This challenge is good practice for "Showing, not telling."
Write a short scene (about 1000 words give or take) about the interactions between people. The interaction can be anything.
The real sticky: No dialog. That's right folks, completely silent.
This is an exercise in describing body language and facial expressions.
Good Luck!
P.S. The final award is the "Totally Missed the Point Award", my way of saying, "It was good, but not what we were looking for."


My highest praises?
