I'm starting to dabble in writing scripts for short movies. I think my problem is that I feel like I'm just telling a story versus showing the story. I guess I am looking for tips on how to show what the story is (in writing).
Screenwriting has its own technique. If there is dialogue between 2 characters and then one takes a gun and shoots the other, that is all written in the script. The walking, the eye contact.........everything. In that sense, you really are showing the movie.
This is a great question. I love books that I get so engrossed in the story because it is so well written. My only tips would be to be very descriptive in your writing. Get people involved in the descriptions and that should tell your story.
