comment First Person Voice - Same as speaking?
I tend to agree with this one over Dale's answer. The only way to drive home the fact that the character has an accent/speaks a dialect is to make his voice consistent throughout.

Would you use the dog, plant, or meandering dialogue to shift perspective, and hence add more depth? As in to add an additional angle to the it than just my narrative? I think you are on to something with 'breathing room'

comment How to overcome the fact that I can't write?
Well, Lorrie Moore got Self Help published at age 22, and one of my teachers who it seemed could like nothing less than the most esoteric of all literary works, eulogized that like it was a gem of the ages. So, point is, we can't be sure.
