I noticed that it's not the "Music" we need to run our engine to write.

Sometimes only noises, many times i i open a talk-show on my tv and leave it while writing.  :notunderstand:

I tend to buy pushed down-buttons keyboard, so when i write i just smoothly move my fingers over the buttons to reach the next button which kinda makes me feel like a maestro and weirdly makes me feel like flying in my text....ok this sound too weird, but hey it works for me  :dance:

and for music i tend to listen to: Two steps from Hell - Archangel  :sure:

And regarding deleting a whole sentence, i believe as a writers we tend to write a sentence in a perfect way or it feels the sentence is wrong or not "Perfect form of writing" that what i feel when i write it.

Manga Artists Wanted / Looking for Shonen-style Artist.
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:26:50 AM »
Goodmorning guys,

Am looking for a Shonen-style artist to draw few of my characters in my story. I need something to fuel me up to move forward, i believe seeing my characters come to life would make that happen.

How will this work, i'll try to pinch you the character looks and throw a background story along his personality. I believe mixing these three factors would also impact you as an artist. Also if it's possible to draw weapons would be awesome.

This would be most likely an unpaid job, but i hope it would go a long way if things works out.  :sheep:

It would be nice to see your art.

Goodmorning mate,

Would be nice to share a summary or a description for the story, i could throw a a lot of ideas in what am seeing here. But knowing your goal of this story would help out to see if it fits our writings.

Cheers!

Do research before hand to get it into your mind, do what you can while writing, and rework in the edit based on your notes. I don't have any specific references for you.

I guess i'll do that then, should i stop writing for this research? or should i carry on writing and while doing the research? i do not want to hold up in my story.

Ok now i guess i'll sniff around, any book or site that you guys recommend?

and also if i find a dialect of interest for me any tips on how to keep it in my mind? or should i just list their words and every time i edit whatever i wrote i just go back at that character dialog and try to change it?

Use words that are commonly associated with British accents. Like"posh"

Ok that will make me pass the countries or accent with english as their primary language.

How about African? they'll mostly use clean English in their talking due of being second language !

So the lessons from this discussion is the following:

- Trust your readers imagination
- Do not force accents just introduce the character with the accent at first then let it sink
- Showing the character's origin by specific words from his origin

Did i miss out something?

Plus my last question how will i implement this in a made-up world? for example if i have a character with a British accent, i cannot say "British" accent in a world that does not have United Kingdom!

Well, in that case you need to rely on the reader to employ their own sense of context. You could write everything exactly the way it sounds, but then it would become an absolute mess to read. Establish where a character is from, and the imagination can fill in the blanks when it comes to how they actually sound.

There is also, I think, merit to not trying to control every detail, and letting everyone who reads it have a slightly varied impression. It gives them more room to connect with a character on their own level.

Hmm that's a good point, however is it wise to write "With an Australian Accent" ?

Am forcing myself to write a chapter of 1000 word each week and post it online, however i stopped due to traveling last month and till now am struggling with the next chapter i have already finished it and edit few times but dunno why am slowing down on posting it and move forward.

My story is a Fiction/Mystery/Adventure. I already have the main events and main characters and the ending drafted however what's between those are hard specially when i want to make sure a lot of mystery is thrown around and references to old and new information around. The story revolves around a man with a certain that is needed by the villains and now he is lost in the open world where he knows nothing about due to his 500+ years sleep. So now he is looking for his child-hood friend who still lives. Through out his journey he'll find out a lot about what happened during his sleep and how his friend is a symbol to the people now days and his family also did a huge impact on history.

Funny thing is when i started this story took me a while to write a huge part around 50k word then i decided to leave those 50k word as a background story and started to write what am writing now.

Well, if you have international characters, then it helps to listen to a lot of people from that place talk. Podcasts are great for this. I also advocate researching local slang. I'm not talking about words to break out so you can go "this person is from blank", but the little things that are worked into every day conversation, that you wouldn't notice as something that really stands out in a sentence. A great example of this would be for characters from different regions in America. Depending on where they are from, they'll say either "pop", "soda", "soda-pop", or if they're a southern heathen, just straight up call everything "coke"

That's a pretty good approach actually, however that may indicate the character's origin. Am more worried about the accent for example between British and American when they say "What" it's written the same but pronounced differently.
