I stumbled across Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing and thought I'd post it. This is good advice, but I think a couple of them go a little too far. I'm sure you could get away with as many as 3 or 4 exclamation points in a word story.
I love music. For me, music is morning coffee. It's mood medicine. It's pure magic. A good song is like a good meal - I just want to inhale it and then share a bite with someone else. We have tickets to your favorite concerts.
