A Good Quote for Writers :-)

I found the following quotation today while reading a conversation about favorite quotations. Suppose we aspiring writers could glean a little from it... :-)

"Don't say it was delightful; make us say delightful when we've read the description.
You see, all those words (horrifying, wonderful, hideous, exquisite) are only like saying to your readers, 'Please will you do the job for me.'"
-C. S. Lewis

That's one thing I've been learning over the past couple years: show, don't tell! :-)
