12.2: How to Nail Character Voice in First Person
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary, Mary Anne, and Wesley
This week we talk about character voice, and how to get it right in First Person. This POV is a strong tool for developing memorable characters. We cover sentence structure, linguistic tweaks, accents, and much more, as well as some exercises you can try out to develop these tools.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Andrew Twiss, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Write a page or two of first-person POV in which the character is trying to complete a task. Now write that same task-completion scene from the POV of someone else who is attempting the task.
Thing of the week: Perennial, by Mary Anne Mohanraj.
