Thank you! (:

Absolutely. I used to write lots of stories, but they tended toward the overly romanticized and dramatic. My characters also gave a lot of speeches... so I give myself exercises. "What does real life sound like? What does it look like?"

This is a good thing. You should get in a writers APA, to me, that sort of exercise, plus feedback from other writers, is what an APA is all about. Talk to Howard, he's still in a few APAs, and he knows quite a lot of famous and semi-famous writers through them. They're way less popular than they used to be, you can get into ones that used to have ten year waiting lists immediately nowadays.
