Show the scene
by Ken K. Chartrand
When you write, try to see the scene. For example, you may have four of your characters in one room. Show that some are standing and maybe all are sitting in chairs across the room from each other. Maybe all four are in a dance hall at the Prom and are sitting each in their own little corner, because these four are shy. See what they are wearing. Describe what they may be wearing. Whether any of them has to wear glasses. Describe the room . Is it decorated etcetera. Describe the colors and settings of tables. Remember to SHOW these things and your story will have atmosphere.
