Quote of the Week–March 24th

Writing The Books We Like

“I try to leave out the parts that people skip.”

– Elmore Leonard

A considerate author thinks like the reader. As an author, you may think that the description of that sunset is a masterpiece of writing, but be honest: if you were reading the book, would you skip it? If you would, don’t write it.
