de citit 001: People like us… we don’t get a choice.

The biggest thing comics taught me about writing was that bad writing involved characters explaining the plot to each other. Good writing showed you the plot. [Nikesh Shukla – Spider-Man Taught Me How to Live,
Comics Taught Me How to Write]

Rufus padded carefully across the cell floor. Without the laces, his brogues were large and awkward. The blue plastic mattress, spread across a narrow cot, was thin and cold against his backside as he sat down. He inhaled, catching a whiff of sweat and booze. In a neighbouring cell, the baritone began slurring his way through Auld Lang Syne again. A younger, gruffer male voice shouted: “Shut the fuck up.” The singing continued. “I said shut the fuck up,” Gruff-Voice repeated. The baritone stopped. “You shut the fuck up,” he shouted.
