Tomorrow is my library day, so I plan on working on my story then, as well as coming up with more terms and sayings (as well as a very broad and rough outline, maybe). I mean, I have read books where the sayings were cheesy and cliche, but I also think that modern-day slang has no right to be in a story where people are capable of flying. I mean when a society is so fundamentally different, its slang should reflect it. So I need to spend time on that, and maybe (just maybe) I can come up with something that is true to my book, and doesn't drive my readers up a wall.
So the slang in novels is a pet-peeve of mine. What things have authors done that makes you squirm?
