Your Royal Snarkiness,
When writing in first person narrative, is it okay to use incomplete sentences? I understand they are sometimes preferred in dialogue, since 99% of the world speaks that way, and it seems to me that in my book, to engage a reader with the narrator, it would help to speak casually.
I brace for the cluegun.
Yea. Well, yanno. It's not all that hard to do. Write truncated sentences I mean. Cause, you're right...well, mostly. It's how people talk. But it's not exactly how they read. And what we say with a wink and a nod, you have to convey on the page. And, the thing is, choppy can get tedious. Like vernacular. Or trying to convey an accent.
Like snarkiness, pepper flakes and punctuation, a little goes a long way.
Ok does not mean hog wild. Ya falla' me?
