Show and Tell

One of the most valuable lessons I've learned about writing has been "Show, don't tell." This can be kind of hard to explain sometimes and can devolve into a discussion of semantics, but while looking for a quote today, I found this and think it conveys the idea perfectly:

Don't say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream. --Mark Twain
