I always have problems with this. This is part of the reason I hate dialogue. I somehow get myself into a corner where some drunk is talking to the main character and I'm stuck trying to figure how to write out a drunk's slurred speech. I don't know why, but I get negative reviews on it and it seems as though it's just because the person reviewing doesn't like that I use dialect in the dialogue. I don't understand. Mark Twain used it extensively and his books are classics, and it's not as though my stories are riddled with dialect and dropped consonants outside of dialogue. Is there some rule that it's not acceptable for writers to use dialect in their stories? It doesn't seem right. There are tons of people who don't speak properly. Why can't I incorporate that into the dialogue of my stories? Not every character is an English major.
