So I'm reading the news this morning when I see a link to an article that makes me go, "OMG"!
This story is about how our every day speech is starting to sound more and more like how we text.
Well, wouldn't you know it--in my new Bloodlands books (coming out August-Oct. 2011), that's how some of my characters talk in the post-apocalyptic future. They call the dialect "Text." No joke.
I turned in that first book about a year and a half ago. The second almost a year ago. The third several months ago. How many people will notice this "Text trend" by the time the novels are released?
How many people will already be talking in Text?
