With a Little Help from my (new) Friends

So.  First, thank you to all those who were kind enough to comment on my first post, and who have decided (for reasons, by the way, I totally do not understand) to follow me.

As I mentioned in my introductory post, I started blogging to have a way to get the stuff that’s stuck in my head out, so that my head can concentrate on the stuff  should be doing.

What I should be doing is working on my book, and as I’ve been doing that, I’ve hit a place where I…could use a little help.

I have a character who uses other people’s (actress’s) voices to speak, and chooses a different voice to use depending on the type of conversation.  So, when this character is trying to be very persuasive, she uses a sex voice — Kathleen Turner’s, to be exact.

For day to day, business type conversation, a more business like, strong voice — Kate Hepburn’s

To command, a strong voice — Judi Dench.

Like that.

But I”m sure I’m going to need other voices — for comforting, or having heart-to-hearts, or scolding, or flat out yelling, or expressing alarm.

And I’m wondering if people here could make suggestions as to whose voice would be appropriate in different situations.

If anyone has ideas, I’d be happy to see them in the comments!

Thanks in advance!

  1. Oh goodness – I wouldn’t have a clue. But – maybe a suggestion…
    Perhaps think back to some of the movies that you’ve seen or tv show that you watch.
    See what personalities fit the characters & go with that as a guide.
