Re: RARA-AVIS: tricks

Of course, there's the opposite extreme, where they just put statements in quotation marks and never identify who's speaking. Unless there's something in the text that gives it away, I sometimes find myself counting lines of dialog to find out who's talking. Especially if someone says, "That's right. I killed him." I think I'd rather they hissed or chortled or interjected or whatever.
