Glow Bone Work Gloves

Qwertyuyerty6453

"Gloves you can work in, with cutout finger holes so you can do anything. And the bones glow in the dark for nighttime. So really, you never have to take them off."

$7.95.

Elmore Leonard's 10 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."

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.

Leonard added, "My most important rule is one that sums up the 10: If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it."

Modem Noise has an expanded version.
