  3. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  4. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.

    Possibly! It's certainly a trap I know I fall into and see elsewhere.

    Character voice is about conveying the personality, presentation, mannerisms, it's about how you identify a character based on what they say, how they say it, and to some extent what they do and why they do it. It's keeping your character in-character and recognisably so to the reader.

    In an ideal scenario, you don't even need the speech tags, you know who is speaking because you recognise that character.
