Oh boy. Showing/telling is hell. Especially when in the examples it’s like:

Telling
“You’re fired.”

She exploded in anger.

.
Showing
“You’re fired.”

She stood up, slamming her fist on the desk. She had been a loyal employee for years, and then this?! This caused her to go beyond rage. She slammed her chair into the wall.


Like, they suddenly give much more information. You can’t compare the two


#96
