White Fella Film ~ Thursday tale
I decided to try a different voice. Does it work? Have you tried colloquial writing like this?
'Hey! You see bloody long white fella film? Australia? Big white fella stars, that’s what they call film people from faraway lands. Came to our land. Land they call Australia. My people give many names for our land. Film bloody good. Hard work. Good grub. Bonza time. That Jackman fella, he a bloody good laugh. That nice Nicole lady, she one pretty lady. Little fella in film, Nullah, that me back then. One they call half caste. Before I go walkabout. Nah not walkabout in film. Real walkabout. Now I take care of family. Sing the song of the white fella film. Good memories. I’m telling ya'.
Maybe you find this style of writing doesn't flow well?
Have you seen the film?
