Letters and Accents

Getting in a good wordcount is dangerously easy right now. XD My characters are being hilarious and discussing really interesting things, so their letters tend to be long. *hopes it doesn’t get too long*

One of their favorite discussions seem to be about accents. Which got me thinking, if you could learn any accent, what would it be? And what would you use it for?

How did your writing go today?

  1. Accent discussions are unbeatable. I’m coming up the the climax and I’m so excited I want to cry. Today’s writing went well enough. I got over 4,000 yesterday, but barely got my word goal in today. Either way, moving forward. Already past 50% towards my goal. *cries again*

  2. Oh…there are so many uses for accents!! I donโ€™t know that Iโ€™d want to learn a new one more than just improve my Dutch one, especially because it vanishes if I start laughing while Iโ€™m talking! My brother and I enjoy embarrassing ourselves by using Dutch accents in public, especially ordering food or things. I can also fake a halfway decent French accent, but Iโ€™m not so confident in that one!

  3. I actually need to perfect a Hungarian accent. My WIP’s set in Budapest, but has a pretty big variety of nationalities represented. So when I read it aloud, I consistently use the American, Australian and London accents that come up, but my MC is Hungarian and I’m not brave enough to attempt making her sound like one.

  4. *Rubs hands together* I love it when the characters get talkative. Also, I’m not sure your books could be too long.
    I would probably get an Australian accent, simply because they’re so fun. =)
    Eh, writing is not going amazing over here (So. many. plot. holes.) But, I’m hoping it will be better today. =)

    1. Ooo, yes! It’s so fun. ๐Ÿ˜€ Aw, you’re sweet. This one has a word limit, unfortunately, but I think I’ll be able to make it work. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      That’s would be awesome fun. Aw, sorry! I lost a whole week or so, so I’m a little daunted about starting again today.

  5. How exciting! All these letters … are you writing an epistolary?
    I always found the journal/letter form of writing to be the most natural. It’s practically just straight conversation, so it flows so smoothly.

    Hmm I would probably want to master the British accent but only for the joy of entertaining myself. LOL “Would anyone care for a spot of tea?”

    1. Yes! I’m quite enjoying it too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think you’re right. That must be why it’s easier to get a higher wordcount with this format. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Haha!! Does your internal voice ever pick up on the speech mannerisms/accents of a character from a movie sometimes? It can be hilarious and lovely when that happens. XD

  6. Great question. I don’t have a great answer. I can talk with a halfway decent German or Russian accent, but I can’t do any others. It would be nice to be able to do a French or Spanish accent so I could more easily include some in my stories. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Iโ€™d like to speak with an Australian accent or a British oneโ€”either English or Scottish. Probably Scottish. Theyโ€™re so cool!! I love listening to those accents. โค
