Anton Chekhov Quote

“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.” (Anton Chekhov).

A few weeks ago, I was working on my novel. Since I really want to be published one day, I was doing research to try to help my story be really, really good. I was reminded of the writing trick “show, don’t tell.” Since I am still an amateur, unpublished writer, I wasn’t sure how to do this. I tried to figure it out, and this quote was suggested. Not only is it poetic and has the most beautiful wording, but it is also extremely profound.
