#books  

rashaka:

:) 

These are great but I couldn’t disagree more with “said is dead” because I’ve read so much purple bullshit prose where I wish the author had just used the word “said” and let the dialogue itself or the surrounding descriptive context do the work. If every sentence is remarked, blurted, confided, declared, interjected, wondered, or announced, it gets tiring. Sometimes people are simply talking.
