How do you hear your character's voices when you're writing? Do they have a particular accent or tone of their voice?
I thought I would cross post this here since I figured you two might be interested in.
Due to my current writers block with my main story I've decided on the completely brilliant (no way this could possibly backfire on me ) plan of starting a second story in addition to my first to give myself something else to work on and my mind a chance to refresh.
It's going to be a blog styled story in the vein of what I did in the past for those that were around for those but mixed with my current vampiric theme and based in the same world as my main story.
For those who aren't familiar with my previous stories "blog style" basically means that I treat the posts as the characters blog where they are the ones writing and posting pictures as well as creating a fictional in world comment section for other in game characters to post on.
In addition to this I am doing a casting call because for this story I need vampires and thought it would be fun to crowd source a few of the background characters from the lounge
The only guidelines are:
1. No glowing eyes, pointy ears, or excessive fangs in normal form, but do have glowing eyes and fangs in dark form (pointy ears and excessive fangs are optional for dark form). The basic idea in my stories world is that normal form is the appearance they have that lets them pass among humans while dark form is their more vampiric true form. Pale skin is fine for normal form though try to keep anything overly vampiric looking for the dark form.
2. No face cracks.
3. Please provide a basic personality description of the character to help me write for them. The extras are intended to be background residents of the town/potential commenters on my characters blog so while I make no promises they will comment it helps in case I have to refer to them write for them as I go. If you would like you can create a background character and opt out of them potentially commenting.
4. Please provide a username for the character if you are fine with them commenting on the blog.
5. Basic world explanation. There are two core classifications of vampires in my world. The covens/broods which are organized groups of vampires lead by a countess/count respectively. And there are the outcasts who are vampires who were either turned but not brought into a coven/brood or who were born outside of them to start with. Vampire hunters also exist in the world but don't have any real organized force. They are more lone wolf types working on their own.
Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to join in
