“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

William Randolph Hearst
“News is something somebody doesn't want printed; all else is advertising.”
William Randolph Hearst

Richard P. Feynman
“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”
Richard Feynmann

John Keats
“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.”
John Keats

“Put another way, to achieve your goals you have to prioritize, and that includes rejecting good alternatives (so that you have the time and resources to pursue even better ones—time being probably your greatest limiting factor, though, through leverage, you can substantially reduce time’s constraints).”
Sebastian Marshall, PROGRESSION
