I have been writing for a character recently and it feels like he has been writing some of my recent posts here.
Poor CW has been the target of a few of his outrageous rants.
Has anyone else noticed that kind of thing happening to them?
Here is a sample of what that guy is like. He's kind of schizoid, flipping between a pompous, ultra-precise academic and a raving lunatic spouting things like this (while delivering a speech to a international conference):
"… the all-too-frequent irritation of pretentious prats thinking they're being "helpful" when they correct other's grammar. I mean, who the bloody hell wants to say 'I' instead of 'me' when they know it's grammatically correct, but they'll end up sounding like (and I damn well refuse to say 'as if' here too) they've got a giant redwood shoved up their arse. (And unlike those sick and twisted, sadistic Americans, I do not approve of giant redwoods being shoved up the rectums of poor innocent donkeys!) … Ahem … And the Subjunctive Mood? Who the fuck is capable of understanding when that should be used, I mean not just recognising it does not sound wrong when they hear it, or accidentally use it themselves."
I would admit this character is definitely a part of me, both of him, it's just I usually don't let him out to play as often?
