I was just skimming through GRRM's A Storm of Swords and I made it to a part I saw on Youtube where a character is coughing a lot. According to this ebook, the dialogue is as follows: "I want to see, kof, see you ride that, kof kof ..." And so now I'm like ... I guess you can just use whatever you want to show things in whatever way you feel will work? I've never heard of coughing being illustrated (written) this way. I like it. I am just trying to get a feel for this writing game. I love when I see rules (or what I thought was a rule) broken. Has anyone else encountered writing in novels that you felt broke the rules well?
