Hello blogging friends! I’m starting a new feature this week called “Writing Quote Tuesday.” I like to google quotes from incredible authors pretty frequently, and this is my way of sharing some of my favorites with you.
Today’s quote comes from one of the great novelists of the 20th Century, Elmore Leonard:
“If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it. Or, if proper usage gets in the way, it may have to go. I can’t allow what we learned in English composition to disrupt the sound and rhythm of the narrative.”
Words to live by!
