This week’s quote comes from C.S. Lewis, author of many of my favorite classics. He’s probably most famous for his Chronicles of Narnia series. I really liked this quote as it offers some wonderful advice about showing and not telling in writing.
“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
