I am currently working on a novel, temporarily titled "Broken Collections."
It's a collection of different writings this girl suffering with Bipolar disorder has made. Most of this being her journal, but also interspersed are letters to her distant mom and ends with her suicide note. It's a story of her struggles, her ups and downs, what's going on in her life.
My question, how do I make this interesting yet believable? And how do I make it more show and not tell?
This is different from asking how to write action because this is about telling the story in a way of making it peak the writer's interest without having the typical "action" you'd expect from novels.
