One of my favorite all-time quotes is by Elmore Leonard. He said, “If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.” Good writing makes you forget someone has labored at a computer, making their writing sound profound. Good writing takes you beyond the words on the page.were written. Instead, you are transported into an experience, a corner of your mind you have visited, or leads you to a door you have not previously opened. It creates pictures in your mind. It stirs you emotionally, spiritually, mentally. Good writing makes you forget you are reading.
