About the book

''These are rules I've picked up along the way to help me remain invisible when I'm writing a book, to help me show rather than tell what's taking place in the story.'' - Elmore Leonard



For aspiring writers and lovers of the written word, this concise guide breaks down the writing process with simplicity and clarity. From adjectives and exclamation points to dialect and what he calls 'hooptedoodle', Elmore Leonard explains what to avoid, what to aspire to, and what to do when it sounds like ''writing'' (rewrite).


Beautifully designed, filled with free-flowing, elegant illustrations, and specially priced, ELMORE LEONARD'S 10 RULES OF WRITING is the perfect writer's - and reader's - guide.
