Looks and voices dont matter much when you enter the... Creative Zone.

Just let your imagination run  rampant like you were a little kid playing he's an astronaut, it may sound a little stupid but man... Being a kid at heart sure rocks! XP

Yes Imaging the voices is very kewl too, and since it's your imagination you can take the place of anyone and play it out nicely. That's the reason why we have it right :P?

something like that

for Coryn at least i just kinda insert my own voice for him. of course its my own voice speaking in japanese with a japanese accent but it gets translated to english in my mind and stuff....it's kinda complicated.

as for other characters i kinda combine the voices of different anime characters in my head. like this one character is part Kira from death note, part ikkaku from bleach, and part my own. if that makes sense.

I don't really think of other characters' voices, more like I actually hear them in my head, freaky and helpful.

I've been lazy lately, I don't remember most stories. I set mine from chapter 2 though, chapter 1 is still iffy for voices and personality since I make it up on the spot, as most people do.

I'm pretty much a mixture in terms of voices. Sometimes they're in my head speaking the same way, sometimes they're cheap imitations and sometimes they're just authentic.

And my thought process is not an exact science... where's that C.S Lewis quote... agh, heck, i'll try explain:


1- The fast track (for when i'm blank of ideas and wanna write a short work), I sit down set a 10 minute timer on my cellphone and start scribbling words that come to mind. Non-stop, without corrections. After that i pick out the ideas that seem interesting and start adding on them throughout the day through music, TV, and stretches of thinking.

2- Gradual development (When i have inspiration i don't want to mess up by rushing it). I have a writing notepad and a doc on my pc for Works in Progress. I try to build on each and everyone over a long period of time. Weeks... The longest being two months, i think.


In general, though, i just get inspired. I've discovered forcing thoughts is hard, so i have to let em come. I slack off to allow my mind to fill up with ideas of its own, then i write. These days though manga and anime are the chief source of inspiration, since 1 i'm loving it and 2 i'm no manga/anime veteran.

(... for character ideas, i write down the names of cast members at the end credits of any show. These names i try to attach personalities to (this is my new method)

... yeah

i never keep notes. it's all mental for me. i figure that if i forget an idea it's not worth putting in the story.

I can't say I have voices for my characters either...

what I usually do is plan out their personalities and back stories first. This helps me come up with designs fro them and also helps me write because I know how they'd react in certain situations ^^

I used to type up each idea I thought up and write some down, I still like to write down basic ideas for ones I like, but I stopped for the most part. I have about 40 ideas written down in one file, I only tried writing 4, then went off and made 20 odd more different stories. I now figure that if I think of an idea and it stays in my head and forces me to think of a  story that it's good.
