Late night reading


  • Me: It's getting pretty late. I should probably go to bed.
  • Book: But there's only a little over a hundred pages left...
  • Me: Can't argue with that. Let's do this.

Sharing a favorite song today: Heart it Races by Dr. Dog.

“Woolf gave us limitlessness, impossible to grasp, urgent to embrace, as fluid as water, as endless as desire, a compass by which to get lost.”

Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules For Writing


ashleykuske:

theatlantic:

  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.”
  5. Keep your exclamation points under control.
  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.

Good advice.

Adverbs: crippling most writing with potential since you discovered them in sixth grade english class. (Note to self: embrace avoiding prologues.)
