When we tell it on paper, we get caught up in grammar, and diction and punctuation, and, in the end, what we really want to say gets lost in the propriety of writing.


Only after we think of the cadence of the pimp, or the stench of the brothel,  could we enhance his swag, or describe the irreverend utility of the prostitute’s room, with well placed punctuation, or grammatically correct construct.


Good writing is better than its propriety.


It’s about the way we tell it.
