Dialogue, Part One

Dialogue, Part One (of God Who The Fuck Knows How Many Because People Rarely Get It)

Okay kids, let’s get real. Dialogue. Why is it so hard for so many people? Everybody talks, right? Everybody hears people talk, right? So why do the words on the page often feel wrong?

I think about this a lot because — not to brag, but dialogue comes naturally for me, and people notice, and mention it. Also, I have had to help a lot of writers fix dialogue issues.

The 27 Club and related bullshit

The 27 club and related bullshit

I really should be finishing Butterface right now. But in the course of my natural distractions I came across an article on the 27 club in Wikipedia which really aggravated the living shit out of me. Too short to tweet, to annoying to bother with Facebook, I decided that I would just vent on a blog on my website because after all that’s what it’s for, right?
