“By the way, an aspect of the voice that I seek to give to all my characters, in case you hadn’t noticed, is humor. Or at least an attempt at it. I enjoy surprising people and hopefully getting them to smile and not take all this cocktwaddle way so seriously and…Oh hell, who am I trying to kid? I’m mostly just doing this nonsense in order to entertain myself. If anyone else gets some amusement out if it, that’s just gravy…. anyway, I digress…as usual… The fact is, if behooves us to choose how we write our dialog just as carefully as we build our shapes and choose our skins and clothing, and craft our streetscapes and structures.”
“Remember; no matter where you go, there you are.”
