A fun and easy of way making all of your characters feel unique is by giving each of them a distinct set of speech mannerisms and vocabulary based on their individual personalities, experiences and proclivities. One that makes them easily recognizable from both other people's characters as well as your own. I enjoy in particular how Arthur has a liking for southern idioms and slang despite being born and raised in New York, and has a tendency to use pop culture lingo in order to "stay hip". As well as how Matthew/Surreal speaks in a Mid-Atlantic accent and uses archaic terms, even though he was born and raised in Colorado (which has no distinct accent). In a way, it also paints a picture of aspects of your character history. Well, I think it has for some of mine anyways :]

@the_conundrum: This is actually great advice that I would probably need to practice with this character.

@ignaticus__: Thanks, and you're welcome! It's just a small something, something I've figured to use for a while here :]

I think my recovery should be over by the end of this month, maybe sooner? I could write lengthier messages now with minor aches here and there, but it's those aches that "warn you not to rush into it just yet," or you'll start all over again. I definitely learned my lesson though >_<

When in doubt, give your new character an NPC to bounce off of so you can more easily find their voice.

Is that really going on or is it just arrogance?

@mockingjay: Well geez, I should hope it’s not the latter... Just certain things that I and others have noticed from certain “people“.

Person #1: “My girlfriend broke up with me!”

Person # 2: “Why?!”

Person #1: “Nothing I say works! For some reason she think I’m an insufferable narcissist.”

Person #2: “But you’re so adorable!”

Person #1: “I know! That’s what I kept telling her!!!”

Terrible joke lol.
