Claro que no recibió ningún tipo respuesta de la pastilla, y sabía que iba a ser así (Pues, ¿Qué pastilla habla?), pero al vivir solo ya había adquirido la costumbre de hablar consigo mismo. Y de darle personalidad a las cosas.

((Whether you're writing your own story or RPing, there's a lot that goes into making an interesting and realistic character. I know that some RPers prefer to come up with characters literally on the spot before they start playing. Others prefer to have one prepared and ready beforehand. I'm one of the latter. Some people can pull off just whipping a character up out of nowhere; if you're able to do that well, you have my respect. But for the rest of us, I have some helpful tips! Not very much of this is WG exclusive, but hey, it helps for any kind of RP.
Once again, most of these are based on my experience and personal opinion. You might have different ideas about things that do and don't work. Take it with as many grains of salt as you wish. The most important thing about RP is that both you and your partners are having fun.))

Though she knows reality still screams
She'd make a fuss if you got inside her head
And filled her mind up with dread, and filled her mind up with dread
"No problems," she always seems to say,
Though she falters with each and every word
It's a mistake, what a mistake
This, like everything else, just happens
It rolls over once again!
One more time, one more time
"If today were my last day, I'd still try to roll again," That's
All she says, all she says,
Can you hear her cracking voice falter with those words?
"Are you ready yet?" "I'm not ready yet.
But I said I'd never stop until I changed where I am so
I'll hold my breath until the end
Rolling Girl, she's almost giving up.
She can't reach it, through all of her pain.
Hear the voices that overlap around,
They're all the same to her; they're all the same to her.
"No problem," she whispers to herself
She's too afraid to speak the truth. And
What should she do if she can't get through?

Chapter 5 “Choosing and Designing Characters” – Section 4 “Dialogue”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Dialogue is a tricky topic, and for two key reasons. The first is that creating realistic dialogue is a difficult skill to master—even in day-to-day life—without speech coming out plastic, pointless, or otherwise unconvincing. The second problem is that the proper dialogue for your story is deeply rooted within the other elements—the characters, the setting, the genre, etc... Because of this, writing dialogue that is custom fitted to your story, requires adjustment and cannot stand up to any “one size fits all” set of guidelines.

Last we talked about the Types of Character you could add to your writing. But there are also character types that you want to avoid as much as you can. Using the following types of character is usually the result of creating them only to move the plot along. And while moving the plot is important, it is equally so to create an organic world that mimics the originality in the world around us—especially in the complexity and uniqueness of every human.

Wand'ring from her empty life to find a better world
Freedom and adventure lay abundant for her there
Buttons in her eyes was but a temporary care
Wasn't too long afterward, the girl made up her mind
Went to live in the Other World without a final glance behind
Such a land of fantasy ensnared her youthful heart
Just one hook was all it took to tear the girl apart
Next to seek a refuge from an overbearing life
Dirty-faced and easy paced, a boy of gentle eyes
Twas espec'lly simple to deceive this honest soul
Love as of a mother, and his heart was surely sold
Writing Tips - Blank Page SyndromeSo you've got your novel or whatever all plotted out. You know what's going to happen each second of the way through. You know all of your main characters to the point of having written a full biography on each of them, including the waiter in chapter 3 who has like two lines of dialogue. You've got your favorite writing music playing on repeat. You've opened up a Word or Google Doc, your fingers ready to go. And yet... you just can't get started. You have no idea where to begin, and anything you try to type just feels weird and awkward. Such is the case of Blank Page Syndrome. The absolute hardest part of writing is getting started, and getting over this. It's not quite writer's block... you know what you want to do, and you could write another story if you want to, but you just can't start this particular novel. And you love this work you're about to begin on.

Writing Tips - Once Upon a TimeWithout exception, the most important line in your fiction prose is the first one. In many times it determines whether or not your writing gets a chance at all. As such, it should be the last new thing that you write. Once you finish writing your entire novel, then you go back and add the appropriate first sentence. Not only does this help you avoid Blank Page Syndrome, but doing it after everything else allows you to create a very poignant opening line (although you can start out with a proto-first line). Everything else I am going to tell you today, every piece of advice, can and has been broken in the past. Writing opening lines is an art, not a science.

Daily Deity #23 JanusThere is a special reason that I'm doing the Daily Deity on Janus today.Daily Deity #23 Janus11 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
The reason is because today is January 1st.
Okay, so that really wasn't that great of an explanation. A better one is the fact that January is named after Janus himself. January... Janus... You guys are smart, you can totally see the root of January is Janus.
So about Janus. He's an old Roman god. Unlike most of the Classical gods I have told about Janus is strictly Roman. And when I say old... well, he's old. Like way before Caesar and the Republic old. He may have been around even before Aeneas, or Aeneas could have brought him there. And while Janus has never held any particular affection in my heart, you kinda have to respect a god that has had such a long life.
Janus is known as the two-faced god. Not because he's tricky, which he is, but because Janus actually has two faces. One sticking out on opposite sides of his head. This is where we get the term "two-faced" when referring to a person being deceitful. H

This is an incredibly thorough questionnaire for your major characters. There's a reason I call it a "Dissection." I've already posted the minor character sheet for all those people you don't need to know the favorite foods and alcohol tolerances of. These are all geared toward protagonists, but can be applied to villains too.

I will warn you that some of these explanations are exceedingly long: the ones regarding the Myers-Briggs personality type, and the one about love languages. They are long so as to explain the concepts to those unfamiliar with them. Also, since I hate writing "him or her" and I will not write "they" when the subject is singular, I am assuming masculinity in my clarifications. Y

False. The gender of the protagonist in children's or young adult's literature does not matter. For example, in the 90's, Goosebumps was really popular. About half of them had first-person female protagonists. This more closely ties into subject matter. Something like The Princess Diaries--written for and by females will largely be enjoyed by an exclusively female audience. Something like The Golden Compass/The Northern Lights, which has a female protagonist but has subject matter like adventure, is very accessible to both genders. If you care about having an egalitarian audience, and you know how to write well—whether or not you use a female protagonist—you will most likely succeed.
You need to revise your novel/work like 10 or 20 times until it's perfect

Sometimes we read dialogue so often, punctuated in so many different ways, that we either forget what we've learned (if that was anything memorable to begin with) or we rely on instinct to guide us. A common example of this can be seen in the opening dialogue of darksouldream's piece, Bobby:

Most Americans will cringe at this. Why? Well, double quotation marks are the more acceptable usage (the "traditional convention") in American Standard English. However, in British Standard English, both the double quotation mark and single quotation mark are used. What's the rule? Stylis
