dc.description.abstract IT'S of the great truisms of fiction writing: show, don't tell. Like all truisms, it needs to be handled with care. Showing, in its most extreme form, will lead you simply to compiling a list of objects. While you'll achieve all the concreteness and specificity you could desire, you'll also risk boring the readers stupid as they drag themselves through sentences that read like shopping lists.
