Showing not Telling

Telling the reader that Character X is angry bars them from that character's mind. They don't experience the minutae of an emotional reaction, stomach acid cramps or cyclical thoughts, sudden exits from public view or muttered swear words.

Instead, they get a remote message from the writer with a pithy summary.
