Now, I understand that Marcia Muller has been around a long time, so this isnt something new in the world, as far as writing goes, only to me. I've noticed in many of her books (someone was cleaning out a book stash and gifted me with a stack of these) she uses some very strange word constructions, based, no doubt, on the way English is Spoke, not how it's written.
I'd've, should've, words're, people're (as in "people are strange")
And now that Ive seen her doing it, I notice that other newer writers're doing it too. Wish I'd not've seen that, it's threatening to make me crazy and stop reading her stuff, which isn't half bad, even if it does get a bit complicated...
Sue Grafton annoys in another way, by her incredible use of the personal pronoun. "I walked out my door, taking my bag and my gun with me, went down my steps to my new car, got in, turned on the key, and drove away."
