TERRIBLE PROSE TUESDAY: Little kids

*sigh*

Writing in dialect is difficult. Getting dialogue to sound right is difficult.

Just…

If I could…

One suggestion…

JUST DON’T WRITE OUT HOW LITTLE KIDS TALK, OKAY?

I do not believe this FOUR-YEAR-OLD is having this conversation, even with┬áher cutesy (if inconsistent) speech impediment. “Aw, it’s cute because she says words wrong.” NO! FALSE!

In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
