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.

General Manga writer discussions / Character's accent
« on: May 06, 2018, 02:21:44 PM »
Evening guys,

I've realized last year that in my writing i had a problem in my writing, that happened after watching "Grimm" the series. that i do not focus on my characters accents and sometimes even their "Motto of talking" for example let's say in One Piece each character has his own unique way of talking for example Marco the Pheonix says "Yo" a lot. So i've tried to do the accent or character different use of terms kinda hard because am more exciting of writing what's next than fixing what's behind.

Any tips and tricks around this matter?

Good Afternoon (In my time-zone at least)

So this is an interesting site i have spotted and i am really glad that i found it.

I've been pitching ideas/stories/novels/mangas you name it since i was 16 years so basically more than 10 years now. I have started watching animes since i was 14-15 around and started with Love Hina...oh damn it.... then GTO. Anyhow this is not the point, Since then i just kept adding knowledge and ideas to my collection of ideas. I did start writing when i was high school sitting back in the class writing with my slobby english and i kept writing till i was 20 years then stopped for 2 years and came back at it when i was 22 with all new developed english from college etc, i did re-write my story and kept re-writing it through the years slowly (with no commitment just as a hobby). As well i have written a lot of short stories and make-up side stories for movies/animes even character profiles. However, Lately am turning this hobby into more serious interest in my life. I've started to write on weekly basis and even sometimes i write at work if am free and keeping a note with me all time just to punch any idea comes to mind.

I am the type of writers who cares about every single detail each spoken word each incident to connect them together later on in the story. let's say am the annoying type you have to bare with in the story to find the ending master piece.

To sum up my introduction what am looking for someone who can draw and have an extreme passion to Shonen manga or Young Adult fiction. I decided to be a writer to one of those, i would like to have a story effects the new generation and make it grow with them as they grow i want to make an influence.



Note: I can also boost up stories, edit, write drafts for any random story just give me a topic am great at that. so please free to contact me.
