You might enjoy this Elmore Leonard writing challenge. CBC Radio's Day 6 is asking listeners to write a single sentence that breaks as many of Elmore Leonard's famous Ten Rules For Writing Fiction as possible. Here's a link:

The five finalists will be featured on Day 6, and have their sentences published in The National Post. They will also win a three-book set of Elmore Leonard's "Raylan Givens" novels:  Riding The Rap, Pronto, and the brand-new Raylan.

We're hoping people will have some fun with this. We'd love it if you can help spread the word. Just get in touch if you have any questions.
