Quote of the day for October 11th!

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it. 


Elmore Leonard

Elmore Leonard (born October 11, 1925) packed his popular westerns and crime thrillers with gritty details and realistic dialogue—no surprise, then, that many of his stories were made into blockbuster movies with Hollywood’s biggest stars. Think 3:10 to Yuma, Hombre, Valdez Is Coming, Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Jackie Brown (a Quentin Tarantino adaptation of Rum Punch). Even before he was in the spotlight, though, Leonard—as a fifth grader in Detroit—wrote a play inspired by the book All Quiet on the Western Front.
