Grammar Girl has a great lesson on"Show" vs. "Tell" for all of you out there who get tangled up in the what, when, and how of that lovely writing rule. Click the little link: grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/show-dont-t
Edit: Make sure you click on the "Further Readings" at the bottom of Grammar Girl lesson...it is a brilliant article. Thanks Peador (this does not erase my rant in my comments. ;-)
Have a Great Halloween!
