One of the best pieces of advice I have heard on writing is from the writer Elmore Leonard. He said if it sounds like writing then rewrite it!
This statement sums up a large amount of advice on writing into once sentence. E.g. Avoid using adverbs, get the point, have a clear vision, use strong verbs, avoid repetition of words, etc… All of these points draw attention to the writing itself and not what it is saying. So if it sounds like writing then re-write it :)Writers InitiativeKeymasterFebruary 7, 2020 at 9:27 amPost count: 4
