In the back room of the Old Ebbitt, Jack and Evan hurried through the door and took their places next to Bob at the bar.

Evan pointed at the closest beer tap and while the bartender filled the glass, he said to Bob, “I can’t believe you wanted to watch the debate tonight.”

Bob eyed him over the top of his glass of Scotch.

“I’ll have one beer with you, then I’m out of here.” The bartender slid over...

“Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”
Elmore Leonard

Elmore Leonard
“I spent most of my dough on booze, broads and boats and the rest I wasted.”
Elmore Leonard, LaBrava

David Foster Wallace
“Postmodern irony and cynicism's become an end in itself, a measure of hip sophistication and literary savvy. Few artists dare to try to talk about ways of working toward redeeming what's wrong, because they'll look sentimental and naive to all the weary ironists. Irony's gone from liberating to enslaving. ... The postmodern founders' patricidal work was great, but patricide produces orphans, and no amount of revelry can make up for the fact that writers my age have been literary orphans throughout our formative years.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

George Orwell
“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”
George Orwell

George Orwell
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
George Orwell
