NaNoWriMo 2019: Day 19--The Sound of Your Voice

Day 19 Word Count Target: 31,673

Some of you, like me, might not think much about how our characters voices 'sound'. We might call them deep, melodious, soft, or nasally...but there are so many other possibilities that its a shame I don't think about them more often...not usually until the editing phase rolls around.

As we're on the downhill slope of NaNo 2019, that editing phase may be upon some of us sooner rather than later. Regardless of whether you're NaNo'ing or not...check these possibilities out and see if any apply to your current batch of characters.
