lucky dime

two hours later, i am ushered out of the colony. a menagerie of unfriendly sounds trilled in the cold ostralian night. that’s fine. it’s the familiar sounds that worry me.

the psuedomoon glimmered on the roof of my fancy little car. metallic and beaten, like an old lucky dime kept around out of sentimentality. that’s what it was. couldn’t get rid of it. can’t get close to others, being who i am. can get close to a car. funny how that works.

i ducked my head in and started the engine.

Actually, Launchpad. And Milo. In the same plane.

Two modes in writing: understatement and overstatement (hyperbole).
The more serious/dramatic the subject, the more the writer should back off in order not to let language distract from the story. The story tells itself.
The more playful/inconsequential the subject, the more the writer can play around with words.

Let me tell you about Pizza Dog. Pizza Dog isn’t his real name. His real name—at least these days—is Lucky, and before that, it was Arrow. But dogs named Lucky are a dime a dozen, and when you’ve got a comic where the main character’s epithet has its own epithet, well, sometimes you’ve gotta let a Pizza Dog be a Pizza Dog.
