From a worse to probably my best.
I know I have a knack for this. I am a magpie for words in my regular life. If I hear a word in an interesting way, then I will use that intonation when I use that word.
I also like to mix them up. Friends are used to me thanking them by saying, ‘Danke mucho’ or ‘Gracias beaucoup’.
It is a definite thing that I concentrate on, especially if I am doing a fanfic. I need the reader to hear that actor say those words and believe it.
I can maybe in love with dialogue too much. A serial fanfic I am doing begins with five lines of dialogue between two people before any action takes place. A reader was put off by that and almost didn’t continue with the story. Thankfully, she pushed past her reticence and is enjoying the fic.
I have an ancestor who was a musician. I like to think that my love of the sound of words is a translation of his talent. That the patterns I hear in syllables mirror those he heard in notes.
It is my go to. The one thing I can count on most.
