Taylor V.
Answer:

"Telling" is just stating facts or statements and puts the reader outside of the story. "Showing" includes great sensory details so that the audience feels like they're part of the story rather than just reading words on a page. Example: Telling: "Mary was happy." Showing: "Mary's lips felt as if they were tugged up by a fishing line as she couldn't help her wide smile spread across her face. Her eyes dazzling with delight."
