And I'm trying to develop my own voice. It's just like real life when you start picking up the idiosyncrasies of your family and friends - gesturing like they do, using the same phrases, eating your food the same way, dressing alike etc.

We'll see where it goes - but feel free to share in the fun. Send me your blurbs overheard and stupid news. And it goes without saying - compliments, adoration and adulation are always welcome here.
