Episode 39: What Does “Show Don’t Tell” Mean?
We’ve all heard the phrase “show don’t tell.” But what do we really mean by it?
In this episode, I share:

- how to apply this to non-fiction writing
You’ll walk away understanding “show don’t tell” on a deeper level, and you will have some new powerful strategies for balancing the important content in your book and other writing you do.
