I think about voices
November 5, 2009 § Leave a comment
We’ll just say I found this link during completely relevant research. Yes, I wasn’t procrastinating at all.
There is an article here that talks about how to make each character speak differently. Not think differently, speak. This was very interesting to me because it was something I noticed after starting to re-read my last nano novel. I get the feeling that my characters all do sound alike (they all talk like me).
Now that I’m not feeling so rushed, I have time to think about something other than “oh god, gotta get the word count!” The characters have always been the most important part of the story for me, because they are the ones who will carry the plot. We’ll see if can use some of these tips to give my characters their own unique voices.
