Mid Dragon's World Chapter 2Chapter 2: Going to the Mall
That night, Alex, my dad, Theian, and I sat at the dinner table, waiting for Z'haer, Eig'nia, and Girido to return. My stomach was growling at me. It was telling me that it wanted food and it wanted food now. Dad had a chicken cooking in the oven that felt like it had been in there forever. I moaned as I slammed my head down on the table, feeling lightheaded.
"Jakol, head up." Dad commanded.
As soon as I heard him say that, I immediately swung my head up. My dad looked at me with an angry kind of look for a few seconds then turned his attention to Theian.
"Theian, how did their first day of training go?" Asked dad.
"Rather well. Alex shows a lot of promise. His strength should become a valuable asset to you in the future. Jake, however While he shows potential, he's uneasy about using his powers. I hope to be able to change that." Theian said.

I have had a few requests from people interested in learning my nekomimi accent, hereby referred to as my nyaccent, so I decided to form a reference of sorts that at least explains the basic rules, as it is more complex than it first appears.
My nyaccent is still growing and evolving, so this guide may change suddenly without notice. Also, I make no claim about this being the only way to talk as a feline anthro, nekomimi, etc. This is merely my take on it and there are multiple right answers and multiple interpretations. This reference is free to use as long as you give me credit for my part, but make sure you check it every now and again for changes.
Rule 1: Sound over Sight
This is the cardinal rule behind my nyaccent. While I have seen similar accent forms around, some of them make me want to cringe b
The Originality IllusionIt's come to my attention that, in the online amateur writing scene, no one seems to understand the proper role of characters in conjunction with plot.The Originality Illusion6 years ago in Writing More Like This
From what I have been able to observe, literally everyone tries to create characters outside of plot by outlining what they look like, what they eat for dinner, and what bands they absolutely abhor. That's the law on how it's done. The amount of "character survey sheets" containing a never-ending list of questions for prospective characters is ridiculous--and sad, because determining these things will in no way help you create a good character or, more importantly, a good story (which I define as an account of a character's actions within a given plot).
In reality, your character is not going to comb his hair, sit down to the dinner table, or workout in the gym with his iPod during the erupting mayhem of your story. If he does, it's because you've invested way too much time in randomly select
