I cannot believe (no, really, I can’t!) that you (Jon Skovron, author of STRUTS AND FRETS) would dare come here (“come here” in a virtual, not literal sense, of course) and attack me so viciously (you bastard)!

feudin’???

I’m finding this feud more in the nature of sword flourishes in a bad highschool play than a real bloody bout of fisticuffs and I am disappointed in all of you.In particular the famed Lyga/Skovron incident smacks of pulled punches and not enough smacking!

Take the safety off and have at each other!

Oh, come on, Baaaaarrrrryyyyyyy.
(see, I can whine, too)
Surely there is something we can feud about!
I am rather fond of the serial comma. I am overly fond, of commas. Period.
Or we could feud about college hoops. Who do you love? I AM GEORGETOWN. And syracuse (yes, deliberately Not Capped) when Georgetown sucks. Sarah Dessen is a wild-eyed UNC fanatic. Barry Goldblatt is a rock chalk (whatever the hell that is) Jayhawks fan.
You?
Oh, dear. What if you don’t like college basketball?
We could feud about breakfast foods. I am rather passionate about that, too.
Ball’s in your court. Or the waffle is on your plate. Whatever.
Laurie
PS – please do not expect timely responses to your dares and double-dog-dares and derringer waving. I’m trying to get a book done and am unchained from my writing space for only minutes each day.

Wow, that was SO anticlimactic! Couldn’t you guys at least smack each other with powdered gloves a few times? Just to entertain those of us who had a bad day?

@Laurie:

WHERE IS THE LOVE YOU GUYS. WHERE IS IT. :'((((((
You make me sadface all over the place you big meanies.
On a more serious note that blog about dialogue actually helped me quite a bit.
