Hi Bryan. Mahalo for the question.

I used Hawaiian Pidgin English in a short story set on Kaua'i. It centered around a multigenerational Hapa-Hawaiian family, so use of language was indicative to character, age, ethnic mix, education, and attitude. The choices I made were guided by personality and used with a light touch.

I'm still waiting to hear if the story will be included in an upcoming anthology, but if you follow me on social media or sign up for my muse-letter, you're sure to hear the news.(less)

Tori liked an answer about Small Great Things:
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
I don't know if I am bothered or pleased that some are finding this difficult to read. I hope that people read this and understand that this is what real life is like. I am shocked that Jodi Picoult was bold and bright enough to take this head on.

“Fighting is easy. Tranquility is hard.”
Tori Eldridge, The Ninja Daughter

“Never become so attached to following the path that you cease to question whether you should still be on it.”
Tori Eldridge, The Ninja Daughter

“I don’t know how it had happened, but Baba’s Norwegian genes had made my Chinese features uncomfortably excessive. My brows arched too high, my nostrils flared too wide, and my lips were pouty and fuller than they needed to be. Even my eyes looked less like Ma’s classic almonds and more like a startled cat.”
Tori Eldridge, The Ninja Daughter

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I love writing, but hate starting. The page is awfully white and it says, 'You may have fooled some of the people some of the time but those days are over, Giftless. I'm not your agent and I'm not your mommy: I'm a white piece of paper. You wanna dance with me?' and I really, really don't. I'll go peaceable-like.”
Aaron Sorkin

“We’ll never survive!”
“Nonsense. You’re only saying that because no one ever has.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride
