Tell me if this sounds familiar...
👉 Your scenes feel great in your head, but when you put them down on digital paper, they just sound flat.
👉 The dialogue you write sounds stilted and meh.
👉 Your characters feel almost mechanical, and there's just no spark on the page.
👉 There's no tension in your scenes when the characters are talking to each other.
👉 Even your trusted beta readers or critique group mention the need to make your characters sound more realistic.
👉 And let's not forget the nagging feeling that your characters all sound eerily similar, blending into one indistinguishable voice.
If you're nodding along, feeling the frustration, don't worry. You're not alone.
