This Friday's Poetry Roundup is being hosted by Random Noodling.

Just about anyone who has ever taken a writer's workshop has been told "Show, don't tell." That advice is offered so often because it is worth repeating. M K Johnston provides a comprehensive discussion of that topic in Part Four of Learning the Basics "Chapter One" at a Time in Thursday's post at Writers In Residence.

Here's Friday's Famous First:
1. "There was a hand in the darkness, and it held a knife."

2. "This story begins within the walls of a castle with the birth of a mouse."
