I came across a question tagged both and . There is a tag wiki for the second but not the first. It says:

  • This tag should be used for questions about the [technique] of "Show, don't tell!" The goal of this technique is to allow the reader to experience the story through senses and feelings instead of only listening to the author explaining something.

Should these not be synonyms? I don't have the rep to do that myself.

I've made a synonym of , and the two questions with the tag have been automatically retagged to use instead.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention - and sorry for not noticing until now!
