Re: "special"... I like that. It was a bit of a set-up. My WIP has a main character who has Down Syndrome (patterned after our son) and I wanted to see how others might describe him physically.

 

 

Show: Powerful jaws gaped wide as the water churned beneath the beast's thrashing tail.

 

 

Tell: My car got stuck in a snowbank.

Well done, VisionWriter!

 

 

Tell: The door closed behind her.

 

 

Show: HInges groaned under the weight of the solid oak door as it ominously dropped into place, nearly catching her heels.

 

 

Tell: They sang a duet.

Oh, I love this challenge! I see some great examples for those who confuse both “show” and “tell” (I know I do) :blink:

 

 

Show: Covered in mud, he repeatedly thrust the blade into the wolf's belly until its yelping mouth silenced.

 

 

Tell: He killed the wolf with a knife.

Welcome, Victoria!

Part of this game is writing a "show" for the "tell" which the previous poster left as a challenge. In other words, if you leave a tell of :"He killed the wolf with a knife", the next poster would write the "show" for that "tell" then leave a "tell" to challenge the next poster. Make sense? Don't know if I explained that very well. If you look back thru the game, I think you'll see what I mean. So, by way of example, I'll take your "tell" and write my own "show" for it, then leave a "tell" for the next poster. ^_^

 

Tell: He killed the wolf with a knife.

 

Show: Guided by his skilled thrust, the sleek blade pushed its way into the wolf's thick hide.

 

Tell: The baby laughed.

Whoops, sorry about that... don’t know what I was thinking. :blink: I will try again.

 

 

Tell: The baby laughed.

 

 

Show: The infant kicked and squirmed with a wide grin as he reached for his teddy bear.

 

 

Tell: The boat crossed the sea.

Tell: He walked down the street.

 

 

Show: The sounds of his footsteps echoing as he walked along the the closed stores.

 

 

Tell: She began to relax.

 

 

- Hope I am understanding the game.

@nastanford - looks to me like you've got it. Welcome to the game!

 

 

Tell: It tasted bitter.

 

 

Show: The essence bit my tongue, sending chills of revulsion down my spine. (I dunno. Does that even make sense? I think I need a nap!)

 

 

Tell: He lit a fire.
