Style what do you notice about how this passage
is written?
  • After Oscar died, I was so depressed that I
    thought about crawling into a hole and
    disappearing forever.
  • But Rowdy talked me out of it.
  • Its not like anybodys going to notice if you
    go away, he said. So you might as well gut it
    out.

  • Rowdy is the toughest kid on the rez. He is
    long and lean and strong like a snake.

would, and punctuate dialogue in the following
  • Do you know why you hit me with that book? Mr. P
    finally asked. It was a trick question. I knew I
    needed to answer correctly or hed be mad. I hit
    you because Im stupid. Youre not stupid. Wrong
    answer. Shoot. I tried again.
