Poll: What’s Your Favorite Rule About Writing from Elmore Leonard?

What a loss it was when Elmore Leonard passed away recently. He left a legacy many writers would envy, and he also had a classic list of writing rules to follow. el-10-rulesI love most of these. Truly. My favorite is number three:

“Never use a verb other than ”said” to carry dialogue.”

The rule I most break? Probably number 5. (I LOVE exclamation points!!!!!!) LOL
