Show Don't Tell: slowing down time in our writing

You will take one moment from your narrative plan and practise 'slowing down time'. Use the film frames to add lots of detail to just one moment in your story. Take a of your work and post it here to share your work with your class. E.g. instead of..."I was so scared". Show it by saying... "I could feel my heart pumping out of my chest. Sweat was pouring down my face and stinging my eyes. I could feel goosebumps taking over my entire body and I began to tremble with fear. I could hardly breathe. What would happen to me? Is this the end? My stomach was churning and I didn't know if I should play dead or run for my life! "
