Weird Writing Tricks (Link)

I just read a great blog about three weird writing tricks for using when it's time to "show not tell."

Finally, my Twitter account is useful to me!

I love the examples she gives. I'm going to start looking for these in the books I read, and then (I hope) I can start putting some good ones into my own writing. Like, "He chuckled low, like the growl of a cornered animal."

Okay, I just wanted to use the word chuckle because I love this picture. I can't remember this candy from the '70s, but I'm pretty sure I would have liked it. I am a fairly indiscriminate candy lover.
