Wednesday's Words to Inspire: Show and Tell

Today I'm going to lead you astray -- from my own site, that is. Recently I came upon a blog post by Jefferson Smith entitled "Why showing is both more and less than telling." As writers, we hear the phrase, "show, don't tell." I'll be honest, it took me awhile to understand exactly what that meant. I wish this post had been out some years ago; my understanding would have hit upon me quicker than a lightbulb. 

Please go on over and read for yourself. The beauty is in how simple and easy he explains this oft misunderstood part of writing.

Have a wonderful Wednesday. Don't forget to drop back by tomorrow when I'll reveal new books to entertain your reading needs.
