“All dialogue should come out of character. It should never
come from the author. If a character speaks in slang, then it
is perfectly proper to let him do so. It would obviously be
out of place to put slang in the mouth of a character to whom
such language would be alien. If you want dialogue to be strong
and vivid, make it _real_. . . . If you really know your
characters, you will know exactly how they should speak.”

-Sidney Sheldon
