Make a Scene

When I find myself "telling" the story instead of bringing the reader into the story and dramatizing it, I remind myself to slow down and make a scene. I have to bring the reader into real time - let the reader peer at the characters through the window and see what happens for herself.

A reader doesn't like to be told what to think and feel. If I do it too much, she'll find someone else to read - someone who respects her intelligence.
