show, don't tell
so I kind of stole this from my english teacher but its an exercise we did in class today. Take these sentences: I was in the waiting room. I was nervous. And rewrite it by describing what is happening. If you want an example I posted one on my account :) Have fun!-I did
I chew my nails.
Pull my hair. Check my phone. Nothing. I look at the time. The clock ticks and tocks. Its hands come together and grow apart; still, nothing. There has to be something. My head is light. Why? Breath? Breath! I inhale...1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and exhale...1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Inhale and exhale. The doors open. I clutch my seat. I see you. Only you.
