I abhor the stream-of consciousness narrative because it's so lazy. Hire an editor, cut the rubbish, and appreciate your reader's time. I don't mind being trapped in a character's mind as long as it helps to tell the story, but it rarely does. Gosh, I hate Faulker. Joyce made this boring style more entertaining, but I'm still not a fan.

#402-26-2013, 05:26 PMHoly Shit. Tompkins makes complete sense to me. Dig his style.
Betcha I could give him a run for his money, though.
I mean, without being self-indulgent and all.

From the article: Holy shit Dave. Cause a diversion! Grab the ball and run like hell!
Oh, if only. Talk about a moment that would have gone down in Wolfpack and ACC history.

And redcanine is right about Faulkner.

I wasn't even aware some of us could read.
