ELMORE LEONARD’S TEN RULES FOR BETTER WRITING
Elmore Leonard is a legendary author. With good reason. He has written a TON of great stuff – Get Shorty, Fire in the Hole (the story that inspired the new hugely popular TV series “Justified”), Out of Sight, on and on and on. I heard him interviewed today and he was talking about a list of ten writing suggestions he came up with years ago. I looked it up and, damn if he isn’t right that EVERY WRITER should pay attention to these. So please do so.
